    Fun, interesting and lovely quality gin
    Very easy to find in Balham. Alexa was a great host, very passionate and knowledgeable about the history of Haymans gin. She made everyone feel very welcome and answered any questions. Was great to sample some of the popular gins. This was a brilliant tour and will be coming back. Thanks also to Jamie the bar tender.

    Excellent tour and delicious gin
    I joined a gin distillery tour on a Saturday afternoon and it was the perfect weekend activity. The staff (apologies can’t remember their names) were very friendly, informative and professional. The tour involved getting hands on with the botanicals, tour& information about the distillery process and of course gin tastings. The gin was delicious. After wards I asked for recommendations of where to go nearby for a couple of drinks and received excellent recommendations. Highly recommend this tour for all gin lovers and those new to gin.

    Excellent and interesting experience.
    My friend bought me a tour for my birthday and we had a great evening. I learned far more than I thought I would and got to taste some delicious gin. Callum and Alexa were great and happy to answer any questions. I've never been to a distillery before and was blown away by how beautiful it was inside (and much smaller than I expected - it's impressive how much gin they make and distribute from here!)

    Give this one a go!
    We went with a group of friends for a tour and tasting experience. From the minute we arrived and settled in the comfy lounge area with the heady aromas of that day's distilling gently wafting about, Alexa and the team made us very welcome. A superb Hayman's Original and tonic was a very pleasant start to the whole thing. Learning about the history of the company and their involvement in creating the London Dry Gin formula was fascinating. Then the practical experimenting with botanicals before getting into more tasting of the different varieties that they create there. Time flashed past so quickly..... but we did manage to take up the opportunity to buy some bottles to continue our lessons, at Leisure back at home!!

Fantastic tour and gin tasting with Alexa and Callum who were really interesting and engaging. The distillery is a beautiful space and the gin and tonic to start was obviously a nice touch.

The Hayman’s distillery is amazing! I was paired with a couple, we got to try the three different gins they have to offer. Callum and Alexa were very knowledgeable plus so easy to ask questions and just talk to. Now I know whenever I’m at a bar, how to order a good gin and tonic!

Had the most enjoyable experience with Callum learning the history of Hayman's, it's distillation and botanicals plus tutored tasting in a beautiful facility 13 minutes walk from Balham station.
Delicious gin and a highly recommended evening.

Fantastic experience. I learned a lot and Hayman’s gin is now my favorite drink. Already scoped out places in the US to buy it . If you can, the tour is a must. It is intimate and a steal at 25 pounds. 💕💕
