Hayman's Gently Rested Gin

Hayman's Gently Rested Gin

70cl | 41.3% ABV | England

Made to represent the booze quaffed in the Gin Palaces of the 1800s, Hayman’s Gently Rested Gin is a lightly-wooded take on Aged Gin, with a round, peppery spice and a thick, oily juniper.

Hayman’s Gently Rested Gin is shy enough on the wood to be sipped as a straight up G&T (orange peel garnish. If you do), but the team also recommend trying it neat with a great wodge of cheese.

Key Flavours

"Due to the gentle resting, the citrus lift is subdued and it's far more peppery on the finish than the other Hayman's expressions, making it ideally suited for drinks like the Negroni."

About this product

Every offering in the Hayman’s Gin range is built upon the same 10 ingredients, with the dosages tweaked for each. All the botanicals are distilled together and once done, it is then left to rest in re-purposed Scotch Whisky barrel for three weeks.

Though it changed hands for a while over the years, Hayman’s is back in the arms of the family that began distilling it over 150-years-ago. Run by James and Miranda, the team bring the category’s heritage into everything they do.

Hayman’s Distillery moved back to London in 2018, setting up shop south of the river in Balham. With a glorious row of gleaming copper stills humming away, a botanical lab and visitor experience it’s well worth a visit!
