Venue Information

Venue Description:

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. Throughout this 150 years, we have been proud to distil True English Gins, using family techniques and processes handed down through the generations.

Unlike other gin available today, their full range of True English Gins are distilled just as they would have been over 150 years ago – benefiting from the authentic period recipes and traditional two-day process that lie at the heart of creating the famously balanced English Gin style.

We believe that behind every great opera company is a great woman and so we loved when Hayman’s told us that behind every great gin is a great woman…in their three traditional copper stills. 
Their three copper pot stills are key in creating the subtly balanced, nuanced flavour long-associated with the True English Gin style – and we get to perform amongst these stunning women, making an incredible back drop and fantastic experience!
