UK gin distillery Hayman’s has released a new expression infused with exotic citrus flavours that include notes of kumquat, pomelo, Persian lime and mandarin.
“As the first London gin distilling family to include citrus as a key botanical, we are simply adding a delicious exotic citrus flavour to our style of gin, said Hayman’s co-owner James Hayman.
“At a time when the consumer is increasingly more conscious about natural ingredients, this is a gin with additional flavour that is naturally distilled from botanicals. The flavour profile of Exotic Citrus derives from the hand-peeled and sundried fruit,” Hayman continued.
The 41.1% ABV gin is made using a two-day process, whereby the peels’ citrusy flavours and oils are distilled to complement the citrus-forward style of the family-run distillery’s signature London Distilled Gin.
The brand suggests that the Hayman’s Exotic Citrus is best enjoyed over ice with premium tonic water, and garnished with a slice of fresh orange and sprig of fresh basil.
With a distilling heritage stretching back to the 18th century, Hayman’s is one of the oldest names in UK gin. After a spell making its spirits in Essex, the brand moved to a new home in Balham, southwest London, in 2018.
