Gabriel Boudier’s extravagant range of liqueurs and crème should all be tasted once and this Crème de Cassis is one of the oldest, classic flavours in the collection. Macerated blackcurrants are balanced against sugar to ensure the acidity of the fruit is enjoyable. On opening the bottle memories of freshly cooked blackcurrant pie come with a rich aroma and flavour follows balancing the tartness of the berries with a much needed sweetness.
Despite their extensive range of liqueurs it’s the original elegance of their classic Grand Marnier which is the most famous. Made exclusively with a luxurious base of quality Cognac, Grand Marnier has a smooth richness to it and a sharp, vibrant orange flavour. A versatile liqueur which is the base for many cocktails and often enjoyed neat, Grand Marnier is a staple of the classic drinks cabinet and one which will be enjoyed time and again.
An original family recipe lives on in Hayman’s Old Tom. Clean and fresh in its flavours with a history dating back to the 1860s, Old Tom uses the same ten botanicals it always has. It stands out from others in the Hayman’s collection due to the intensity of the botanicals within and the addition of sugar for sweetness. Juniper and orange zest work together to introduce the drink and by the end you’ll be enjoying cracked black pepper in a clean, long finish.
