HAYMAN'S

Distillery
Founded in 1988
The Hayman family is the UK’s oldest distilling family, dating back to 1863, when James Burrough bought a Gin company in London.

Today, the Hayman Distillery is headed up by Charles Hayman, great-grandson of James Burrough. Charles joined James Burrough Limited in 1969, and was responsible for the production of Beefeater Gin until the late 1980s.

In 1987, the company was sold to Whitbread. Charles moved, along with the ownership and worked a while for the company before realizing working for a large conglomerate wasn’t for him.

In 1988, Whitbread sold James Burrough Limited back to Charles and the Hayman family, and it’s been known as Hayman Limited ever since. Today, the distillery sits in Witham, about 40 miles East of London. The distilling, blending and bottling of Hayman's Gins all takes place on this one site.

What does Hayman's taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Hayman's Gin. It's based on all Hayman's drinks in our large database and gives you a chance to taste Hayman's before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

The traditional copper pot still used in the process is a 450 liter still named Marjorie, after Charles’ mother, and James Burrough’s granddaughter.

The Hayman family is a long line of distillers, with the fifth generation now working in the business.
