Distilled to a Gin recipe from the 1850s and Cask Rested in the Gin Palace Tradition.
Gin has never had an age statement. However, in the 1850s, Gin was transported, stored and served in wooden barrels rather than a bottle. Drinking establishments, called Gin Palaces were common place all over London and Gin was served from the barrel. In 1861, The Single Bottle Act allowed spirits to be sold in bottles.
Juniper and coriander are the key botanicals in Hayman’s 1850 Reserve. Following distillation, it is rested in Scotch Whisky barrels for 3-4 weeks which gives a mellow and smooth style of Gin. Hayman’s 1850 Reserve is distilled in batches of 5000 bottles and each bottle is individually numbered alongside the batch no.
Subtle smooth mellow notes from the wood with appealing hints of spice and pepper from the juniper and coriander resulting in an aromatic, well-balanced and full bodied.
