Hayman’s Gin Brand Home
London’s Family Gin Distillery
The Hayman family have been producing gin for five generations. To mark their move to a new home in South London – just a few miles from where their story began in 1863 – we created The Home of English Gin: a working distillery set within a period warehouse that allows the public to experience all that Hayman’s has to offer.
Hospitality is key to the Hayman’s brand and we built a welcoming environment that worked seamlessly with the gin’s production. The Home of English Gin shares the passion, expertise and heritage of Hayman’s while allowing visitors to feel at the heart of the process.
Our expertise in designing distillery brand homes gave us the knowledge to work creatively and responsively around a complex site and offer a truly immersive experience for guests and customers. The new premises feels like a warm English home, marrying the Hayman’s heritage with a modern working business.
A family welcome is the first thing visitors receive, from Miranda, Marjorie and Karin, three shiny copper pot stills named after beloved women in the Hayman family. Further into the experience, the lab area introduces guests to the botanicals and recipes behind the gin range, giving them a glimpse into the production and experimentation hub of the distillery, while the mezzanine lounge and cocktail bar provides a comfortable and informal space to enjoy the finished product.
The Home of English Gin is as modern and industrious as it is traditional, bringing the Hayman’s family values to the forefront and proving that it can be a very good thing when business is personal.
