Hayman's relaunches Gin Liqueur

Hayman's has relaunched its Gin Liqueur, initially released by the distilled in 2004. 

When first released in 2004, Hayman's thought it was the world’s first gin liqueur, with the recipe adding small amounts of sugar to the Hayman’s blend of ten botanicals. 

Describing who he anticipates will enjoy Hayman’s Gin Liqueur, James Hayman comments: "This is a liqueur for people who enjoy the taste of gin. By adding just the right amount of sugar to our blend of ten classic botanicals we’ve been able to capture all that wonderful gin character but layer in the underlying sweetness traditionally associated with a liqueur."

Hayman’s claims that the Gin Liqueur developed something of a cult following in warm weather markets such as Spain, where it was considered a refreshing serve – most often enjoyed neat over ice or as a play on a classic gin and tonic.

Commenting on the timing of the relaunch, James Hayman explains: "In many ways this is the perfect summer drink. Wonderfully smooth, the high bottling strength and classically balanced botanicals make it perfect for enjoying neat over the rocks with a simple orange wedge garnish. Or for a long refreshing summer serve, simply top with tonic, soda water, ginger beer or even prosecco and garnish with fresh fruit. It’s a brilliantly versatile drink for the summer months – perfect for long evenings or lazy afternoons at home in the garden." 

Just 6,000 individually numbered bottles of Hayman’s Gin Liqueur have been created. They are available to buy from the Hayman’s of London Distillery in South West London, with an RRP of £39 and online at
