I am a big lover of a good gin. I am always on the lookout for a great new gin. And I always on the lookout for a great classic gin cocktail. Enter Hayman’s Dry Gin.
Hayman’s distillery was first established bck 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. It is balanced, elegant and clean. It makes a great gin and tonic but it truly shines in some great cocktails. Enter the clover club.
