Hayman's London Dry Gin
London Dry Gin
Hayman's // England
Each style of gin from Hayman Distillers follows a different family recipe but is distilled with the same botanical blend: juniper, coriander, lemon peel, orange peel, angelica root, cinnamon, cassia bark, orris root, licorice, and nutmeg. Production of Hayman's London Dry Gin involves seeping the botanicals for a full day before distillation. This classic style of gin was released in 2008 and is bottled at 40% ABV.
London Dry GinNeutral spirit flavored with juniper and other botanicals. In the US, the minimum ABV is 40%; In the EU, it is 37.5%. Originally, only made in London, this can be made anywhere. No artificial flavors or colors can be added. Only water, neutral grain spirit, and sugar (no more than 0.1g/l) can be added.
"The aroma is pretty intense with classic aromas with a bit of sweet spices particularly coriander. The licorice comes through just a touch as you taste. Citrus and cinnamon are the last notes you taste at the finish. This is an all-around use gin, but the sweet spices come through just a bit stronger which play nicely into a berry-based cocktail like a Clover Club."
