Hayman’s Sloe Gin is a traditional English liqueur made by infusing gin with the sloe berries of the Blackthorn tree which grows throughout the British Isles. Wild English sloe berries are gently steeped for up to 4 months with Hayman’s London Dry Gin before blending with just a little natural sugar to create this rich liqueur. And you still taste the gin! Drink in classic cocktails, sparkling wine, or with soda in a traditional fizz. The Hayman family is the oldest gin-distilling family in London, dating to 1863. The defining characteristics of Hayman’s Gin include: use of three small copper-pot stills; 24-hour maceration of botanicals, for extra concentration; and the use of 10 classic botanicals in varying proportions depending upon style. (The ”Hayman 10” are juniper, lemon, orange, cassia cinnamon, Ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg, angelica root, orris root, coriander seed and licorice root. ) Recipe Sloe Royale Build in a flute: 1 oz Hayman’s Sloe Gin 4 oz chilled sparkling wine Garnish with lemon peel
Producer The original company of Hayman Distillers was founded in 1821 and acquired in 1863 by James Burrough, the great Grandfather of the current Chairman, Christopher Hayman. James Burrough created the world renowned Beefeater Gin. Although Beefeater Gin and James Burrough Limited were sold to Whitbread in 1987, the Hayman family retained part of the business and continued the tradition of distilling and blending Gin and other white spirits.
