How Hayman's make their gins

Installed in 2013 and named Marjorie after Marjorie Burrough, Christopher Hayman's mother, Hayman's 450-litre Carl Still is element-heated and boasts six optional plates and a pre-condenser. The all-copper still with optional botanical chamber and rectifying column allows the Hayman's family to experiment as well as reproduce recipes from the family archives.

All Hayman's gins use the same ten botanicals, it's just the intensity of each botanical which changes between each specific gin recipe. For example, Hayman's Old Tom uses almost twice as much juniper as its London dry. The ten botanicals are:

  1. Juniper Berries from Bulgaria or Macedonia
  2. Coriander seed from Bulgaria
  3. Nutmeg from India
  4. Cinnamon from Madagascar
  5. Orange Peel from Spain
  6. Angelica root from Belgium or France
  7. Orris root from Italy
  8. Cassia bark from China
  9. Liquorice from Sri Lanka
  10. Lemon peel from Spain
