The story of Hayman’s Old Tom
Following calls from bartenders wanting to revive the classic gin cocktails such as the Martinez, Tom Collins and Ramos Gin Fizz – Hayman’s launched
Meet the gleamingly beautiful copper stills at our distillery – Marjorie, Karin and Miranda. We have continued the family tradition of naming the Hayman gin stills after the women in our family…
Our 450L still is named after James Burrough’s granddaughter and Christopher’s mother
Our 1000l still is named after Christopher’s wife
Our 140l still is named after Christopher’s daughter
The Hayman’s copper pot stills perform an essential role in our gin distilling process – allowing heat to be dispersed evenly and efficiently while stripping out any unwanted flavours and aromas. These stills are at the very heart of what we do – in creating the bright and balanced, smooth flavour of our gins.
However, we are more than simply a gin distillery. Repeatedly voted ‘London’s Favourite Gin Distillery’ by Trip Advisor – the Hayman Distillery where we make our family-made gin is where visitors can learn about our handcrafted, award winning spirits, enjoy a variety of gin (learning and drinking) experiences and purchase directly from our Distillery shop.
Our Distillery is a vibrant and welcoming destination for Londoners and tourists alike. Find out how to visit us here.
We look forward to meeting you all.
