Hayman’s Royal Dock
Here’s a little fact about Hayman’s Royal Dock. If you were to accidentally spill Navy strength gin on gunpowder, it would still light. Although we don‘t suggest you try it.
You can expect a charismatic bright and robust style, with unrivalled intensity. But even at 57% ABV, Haymans’ Royal Dock Gin is not at all overpowering. There’s a certain smoothness as it retains a brilliant balance of juniper, coriander and citrusy flavours.
They named this style “Royal Dock” after the yard of the same name, located in Deptford on the Thames in South London, which was established in 1513 by Henry VIII. The Royal Dock yard was the largest of the Admiralty in England, with the other 2 in Gosport and Plymouth.
Over the following four centuries the Royal Dockyard became a storied location and the point of departure for some of the most significant ventures in British naval history. From these voyages onward, this Gin has travelled the world over.
A bright, crisp nose with notes of coriander and lemon complimenting a big juniper hit.
