Overview
The session design is exclusive and unique to the Tripadvisor platform; Visit us at the Home of English Gin in Balham, South West London to explore the stories and processes behind our full range of True English Gins. The Hayman's are fourth and fifth generation family run business. The oldest, continuous distilling family in the London, uniquely steeped in their own heritage and history. Relaxed and informal, we encourage interaction. We adopt a hands-on approach when we look at our botanicals, an ideal way to get a feel for flavour and aroma. Our tastings are tutored however we want to put emphasis on subjectivity, allowing our guests to find their own narrative with regard to nosing and tasting spirits. In summary, a fantastic session to not only learning about Gin history and production but an engaging way to learn about tasting and approaching spirits.

I cannot thank John and the team at Hayman's Gin for a wonderful tour. The guide was informative, historical and the gin was absolutely delicious. I cannot recommend the tour enough for anyone in the area or visiting London. It is my third distillery tour, however by far was the

Visited the distillery for the 90-minute tour. It was full of fun gin history and the history of Haymans gin. Loved that you get to try 3 types of gin and experiment with their botanicals. Worth visiting if you’re in the London!
