Introducing True English Hopped Gin.
This Limited Edition is the first in Hayman’s ‘Bartender Release’ series and was co-created by Bartender Jordan Sweeney of The Wigmore Tavern at the Langham Hotel.
Jordan was the winner of the Hayman’s True Taste Competition. The prize included a five-day distilling apprenticeship working under Master Distiller Christopher Hayman and Distiller Sam Pembridge, to make Jordan’s own special edition Hayman’s Gin. To find out more about how he found his apprenticeship, check out his interview here.
Jordan chose to add fresh grapefruit and the heritage English Fuggle and Goldings hop varietals to the Hayman’s signature blend of ten botanicals. The English Fuggle hop was introduced to England in 1861 – just two years before Christopher Hayman’s great-grandfather first entered the gin industry – and has for generations been a popular element in traditional English ales. The bright citrus burst from the grapefruit combined with the pronounced grassy notes from the hops create a wonderfully balanced serve.
Hayman’s Hopped Gin is the perfect gin for making a True English G&T, best served with a wedge of pink grapefruit to create a refreshing twist on a classic English G&T.
Just 1,200 hand-numbered bottled of Hayman’s True English Hopped Gin have been created. They are available to buy from the Hayman’s of London Distillery in South West London and on our website.
