Clover Club Classic Cocktail: Hayman’s Dry Gin

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.

The Clover Club is a recently rediscovered pre-Prohibition classic hailing from Philadelphia. This classic cocktail is a refreshing combo of gin, egg whites and raspberries.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.
