Small Gin

Throughout the original gin boom of the 18th Century, those who enjoyed gin were typically drinking it mainly for the alcohol – with juniper, and other botanicals added primarily to make the spirit more palatable. Today, the situation is reversed, with many people making more considered choices and actively looking to reduce their alcohol consumption but keen to continue enjoying the classic gin flavour they love. The biggest innovation within the gin category for 100 years, Small Gin is the perfect solution – a real gin that allows you to mix a true G&T with just a fraction of the alcohol.

Small in size but big in flavour, Small Gin is so rich in botanical character that the recommended serve of just 5ml (one thimbleful) is all you will need to create a wonderfully balanced real gin and tonic containing 80% less alcohol.

Each bottle of Small Gin comes with a specially designed 5ml measuring thimble hand tied around the neck, making it easy to mix a perfect Small Gin and Tonic at home. Just one thimbleful contains the same botanical flavour as a 25ml measure of standard gin.

Perfect for anyone who loves gin but is looking to drink a little less alcohol, the ideal choice for working lunches, weekday evenings and summer barbecues.

Pair with low calorie tonic water and a twist of lemon peel for a Small Gin & Tonic with 80% less alcohol.

5ml (thimbleful) Hayman’s Small Gin
100ml premium low-calorie Tonic Water
Twist of Lemon peel

1. Fill a highball with cubed ice.
2. Pour in a thimbleful of gin.
3. Top up with 100ml tonic or to taste.
4. Serve with a twist of lemon peel.


To achieve a bartender’s precision with the garnish, use a potato peeler to take a strip of lemon zest and trim with a sharp knife to create an even shape. Snap the zest’s natural oils over the top of your G&T to enhance the gin’s natural citrus character.
