UK’s Essence of Family Business Winner 2023

We are thrilled to have won the Essence of Family Business Award 2023, defining the true essence of what it means to be a family business.


The judges commented that “Hayman’s carefully blends pride with their heritage and the need to build a strong and sustainable business of the future, representing the real essence of what being a family business is all about.

It is evident the love and care that goes into their great great grandfather’s recipe and reputation, putting that message into everything they do – including their recent, impactful advertising campaign”.


A big thank you to our team for helping us win this award. Having been an independent family business for 160 years, it is great to be recognised for both our longevity as well as our drive to be innovative and remain relevant to gin drinkers all over the world.
