Our Story

The very essence of Hayman’s is that we still make our gin today using the same family recipes developed over 150 years ago.  Using only the finest botanicals available combined with the two-day gin making process, our botanicals are infused in English wheat spirit for an entire day allowing the full natural flavours to shine through.

Our traditional process is rare in this age of modern gin, however we are convinced it is this technique, as well as further innovations, which has led to the most highly acclaimed awards as well as continued positive acclamation for Hayman’s Gin.

Whilst we stay true to how our gin has always been made – James and Miranda Hayman are adamant about pioneering gin for future generations.

In recent years some of our innovations include Hayman’s Gently Rested, Hayman’s Hopped Gin and Hayman’s Small Gin, the most impressive innovation in gin for more than 100 years. So often – for whatever reason – we look for a drink with lower alcohol and fewer calories.  Hayman’s Small Gin ™ makes a G&T with both 80% less alcohol and less calories, with no compromise on the great taste of a Hayman’s G&T.  A thimbleful is all you need – just pour over ice and top up with 100ml light tonic.
