Haymans - Family Reserve GinRested in Scotch whisky barrels
Available 24th Jun 2018
A limited edition, released in batches of 5000 bottles with each being individually numbered alongside the batch number.
Hayman's Family Reserve from the oldest gin distilling family in England reflects the style sold in the ornate 'Gin Palaces' in England in the 1800s. It is rested in Scotch Whisky barrels for three weeks in keeping with the tradition that gin was sold from the cask rather than the bottle, which was commonplace until the 1860s. The impact of the wood adds a subtle mellow note to the gin's overall profile.
A classically smooth and rounded style with enticing hints of spice and pepper. This style, with dominant notes of coriander and juniper, differs from Hayman's London Dry and Old Tom where citrus is prevalent on the nose. It is a versatile gin for both classic and modern cocktails at a 41.3%abv.
