As an independent company, we have the ability and agility to be adaptive and quick to respond, providing our customers with a truly personalised experience.
Hayman’s Gin are thrilled to launch their new gin, Exotic Citrus. Elegant and delicious – it is naturally made with the bright exotic citrus fruits of kumquat, pomelo, Persian lime and mandarin. The depth and vibrancy of flavours are the result of naturally distilling the sun-dried exotic fruit peels as part of their unique two day process.
