As traditional as it gets these days. Best Gin 2014, SFWSC.

Hayman's distillery was established in 1863 by James Burrough, after he had bought it from John Taylor and Sons. A century later Christopher Hayman, the Gin Master of the company for the past 40 years, joined the company.

Hayman's London Dry Gin is made from a recipe of 10 botanicals, including angelica roots from France, Cinnamon from Madagascar, Coriander from Bulgaria and Orris root from Italy, all of which are steeped for a full day prior to distillation to allow the flavours to release.

The Hayman's use a traditional pot still to create this as traditional Gin as they come these days. Christopher believes a pot still should be used instead of column still, to allow the flavours of the botanicals to develop their full potential. We concur! Hayman's London Dry Gin was awarded Best Gin and won Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2014.

The traditional copper pot still used in the process is a 450 liter still named Marjorie, after Charles’ mother, and James Burrough’s granddaughter.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Gin was so cheap and popular in London in the first half of the 18th century, an epidemic of drunkenness engulfed the city. There were 7,000 Gin shops by 1730 and wasted Londoners fell victim to acts of violence and widespread addiction. The government had to step in with an emergency legislation to stop the so-called "Gin Craze".
Is Gin gluten free? Sort of. While Gin is made from a grain Spirit, which could include wheat, barley or even rye, some experts say that it’s still suitable for those on gluten-free diets due to being distilled. The distillation process removes enough of the gluten protein in the drink to make it gluten-free. But proceed with caution.
The Hayman family is a long line of distillers, with the fifth generation now working in the business.
