Since 1863, five generations of the Hayman family have taken care to preserve the true English style of the gin, ensuring a perfect chain that dates back to the times of the gin boom. Over a century and a half, the family is proud to have distilled true English gins using familiar techniques and elaboration processes that have been passed from generation to generation.

From this family of gin guardians, we offer you Hayman's Old Tom Gin , a glorious example of the select Botanics that this family uses in the elaboration of its distillates. Like all the company's gins, the Old Tom Gin is faithful to its Victorian origins of the XIXth century, something that is perfectly appreciated in the subtle sweetness that makes it one of the true English-style gins.

This distillate is characterized by its aromas of juniper, soft spices, and citrus, with subtle earthy notes. On the palate, it shows rich, round, and deliciously soft, with a vibrant citrus flavor and a sweetness similar to that of sorbets. Its delicate finish and persistent citrus notes are the perfect closure for the experience of trying it.

Hayman's Old Tom Gin

4 /5

- Hayman's Old Tom Gin is a botanically-intensive and lightly sweetened style of gin that was particularly popular in the 18th Century and was the Gin of Choice in the 19th Century.
- In comparison to London Dry Gin, the Old Tom style delivers a more rounded taste experience with depth. The distinctive Old Tom Gin profile is the key ingredient in classic gin cocktails such as the Martinez, Tom Collins and Ramos Gin Fizz.
- The style of Old Tom is renowned for its botanical intensity balanced by a light sweetness, which imparts a more complex experience than other styles of gin.
- Nose: Hayman's Old Tom Gin has a botanically-intensive, sweet, lightly-fruity nose, with aromas of sweet digestive biscuit, almond and creamy lemon-citrus. Hints of ginger, dark chocolate, and sweet, spiced coffee, with a light herbal-spiciness from juniper and coriander, give a more rounded fragrance.
- Palate: A rich, soft, round mouth feel, yielding to a sweet, medium body of candied ginger, orange peel and lemon zest, with accents of violets, rose-water and anise, provide the nicely-balanced, traditional flavour of this lightly-sweetened gin style.
- Finish: The finish is a delicate, spiced-cake note with a touch of honey-icing. After an initial sweet, confectionery taste, hints of citrus and juniper spiciness supply a lovely, smooth taste.

4 /5

I like this gin, but now I'm saying it in a very subjective way because I love ginger and palodú, and this gin evokes those memories in me nose.
Also preserved citrus flavors on the palate with sweetish accents (cacao), although less so than the Hayman's gin liqueur.
My gin and tonic with this serious gin:
The glass ball serve with thin glass, ice cap (to fill the glass), with the help of the shaker spoon stir the ice crystals to cool the glass and remove the water that has been released.
This time I add a root of palodú about 10 cm long, yes, no need to peel, but fairly clean.

Time to take Gin Hayman's Old Tom Gin (short story 1001, 1002 and 1003) from a certain height in order to be oxygenated.
And finally, aided by a spiral spoon, add the tonic, very slowly. This time choose Fever Tree Ginger Beer to enhance those flavors of ginger. If you want drier, would direct the fever tree tonic water.
