Carlyn, our Spirits buyer's pick of the month is a hopped gin from Haymans.
Since 1863 five generations of the Haymans family have acted as custodians of the True English Gin style - providing an unbroken lineage dating back to the original gin boom. Throughout these 150 years, they have been proud to distil their gins using the same family techniques and processes handed down through the generations.
New to our shelves this month is their Hopped Edition Gin, which was co-created by bartender Jordan Sweeney. To create this special edition bottling, fresh grapefruit and heritage English Fuggle and Goldings hop varietals to Haymans' signature blend of ten botanicals.
The bright citrus burst from the grapefruit combined with the pronounced grassy notes from the hops create a wonderfully balanced serve.
