BEST OF BRITISH
Incredible, locally sourced and sustainable produce is at the heart of everything we do. We have sourced some of the best British spirits, spirits that are distilled all over England by unique, family-run distilleries. All perfectly paired with British Franklin & Sons mixers.
We love to tell a story, and all of our Best of British have great stories, from hand-grafted Gin created in a shed in Kensington, to vodka made from the leftover whey from cheese production on a farm in Dorset.
Follow the stories of all of these spirits as we showcase them over the next 8 weeks
Spirit of the Week!
Since 1863 five generations of the Hayman’s family have acted as custodians of the True English Gin style – providing an unbroken lineage dating back to the original gin boom.
Unlike other gin available today, their full range of True English Gins are distilled just as they would have been over 150 years ago in the heart of Balham – benefiting from the authentic period recipes and traditional two-day process that lies at the heart of creating the famously balanced English Gin style.
The generous quantities of botanicals used in Old Tom create a bold citrus and juniper pine character that is rich and rounded on the palate with a beautifully delicate finish. And the subtle underlying sweetness keeps it true to the original style of English Victorian gin first enjoyed in 19th Century England. We have paired it with Franklin & Sons Elderflower & Cucumber tonic.
