Hayman's Old Tom Gin
|Region||United Kingdom, England|
It's time for gin! We're all learning to make new cocktails, and if classics are your thing, then the intense and classic gins from Hayman's of London are just the gins for you. Made by the oldest gin distiling family in London, Hayman's gins bring the juniper backbone that make classic cocktails sing, but with a not-too-citric balance that is perfect for simple drinks as well.
A relative newcomer to the gin landscape, this is the proper gin to use for a Tom Collins cocktail. It intentionally leans sweet, but it's balanced with the right amount of alcohol bite, a lightly piny scent, and faint herbal and citrus peel notes. If using this 19th-centurystyle sweetened gin for other cocktails, be sure to hold off on adding sugar.
