At Cubitt House we are committed to working with only the very best suppliers who ensure we receive only the very best while not sacrificing anything in production. Hayman’s Gin embodies this with their commitment to sustainability and following production methods they have been using for centuries.
We caught up with Miranda Hayman to ask her a few questions.
What is your role in the company and how long have you been at Hayman’s?
Together with my brother James, we are co-owners and have been working in the family business for almost 20 years.
Tell us a bit about the history of the company?
The story of Hayman’s started way back in 1863 when our great great grandfather pioneered the distinctive taste of London Dry Gin. Fast forward 160 years and we’re still so proud to put his original recipe in every bottle.
We’ve been trying out new ideas and different styles for five generations, concocting and creating with passion and enthusiasm, and our gin has won awards all over the world.
At Cubitt House we are passionate about using the very best suppliers, following the very best practice, to ensure we only use the finest ingredients in everything we make, from our drinks to our food. Tell us a bit about your methods at Hayman’s that make your gin so special.
As an independent family business who has been dedicated to making the best-tasting gin for five generations, we really care about what we make, who we work with and the people who enjoy our gin. We’re committed to sustainable methods, sourcing renewable ingredients and recycling waste, and we encourage everyone in our team to collaborate and join in our mission to shape and share the future of gin.
We are the only London family gin distillers still making gin today and we remain true to our heritage. We use the same family recipes and make all our award-winning gin by hand, using only the finest botanicals and a traditional two-day process which is rare nowadays. As with cooking, you never rush the process to get the best flavour profile and that a full flavoured and balanced London Dry Gin must be made over 2 days.
We are looking forward to our gin based cocktail making masterclasses we are holding at The Clubhouse using Hayman’s Gin. We also know you hold distillery tours at Hayman’s. Tell us a bit about why these type of customer interactions are important to you.
Our Distillery is a hive of activity – it’s not only where we make our gins but also home to tours, workshops, our training academy, distillery gin shop and so much more. Any interaction with our gin drinkers – from a cocktail masterclass to a gin purchase – is brilliant. It allows us to find out how they enjoy our gins, what they think of our new launches, and which cocktails they’re currently enjoying on a night out.
