Hayman’s of London has launched Small Gin, a full strength gin with stronger botanical flavours designed to reduce the amount of spirit required to serve a Gin & Tonic.
The small 20cl bottle is intensely flavoured with botanicals which means just 5ml of Hayman’s Small Gin is required to make a balanced G&T, which in theory reduces alcohol consumption by 80%.
Fifth generation family member, Miranda Hayman, said: "Many consumers are actively looking to reduce their alcohol consumption but are keen to continue enjoying that classic gin flavour they have grown to love. Small Gin is the perfect solution – a real gin that allows you to mix a true G&T with just a fraction of the alcohol."

Many have fallen for the charms and complexities of Game of Thrones. You've spent years afraid your favourite characters might get killed off. You can't help but hum the intro theme. Now, thanks to Diageo and HBO, you can toast its triumphs with a bottling from its range of eight rare single malt Scotch whiskies.
The limited-edition Scotch you see here is Royal Lochnagar 12 Year Old, a Highland stalwart from a distillery that was said to be a favourite of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, and is conveniently situated close to Balmoral Castle. Combined with its proximity to Cairngorms National Park, an area that contains one quarter of Scotland’s native forest and plenty of deer, it's little wonder that it was paired with House Baratheon, a house with plenty of royal connections and whose sigil features a rampant stag.
This is a single malt whisky that was made from a collaboration between German rock band Scorpions (you know – Rock You Like a Hurricane, Wind of Change etc.) and Swedish distillers Mackmyra. It was matured in German sweet cherry wine casks, which gives it an interesting point of difference while also honouring the band's heritage. So, do you think you're ready to 'Taste the Sting'...
Six different types of wooden cask are involved in the making of this exception King Alexander III offering from The Dalmore. With influences from Madiera, Marsala, Kentucky bourbon, wine, port and sherry casks, this truly is a complexly developed malt that stands out. Seville orange zest comes through on the nose, with strong vinous notes, creamy vanilla fudge and tropical fruit. A rounded palate and a refreshing taste.
One for Kings and Queens alike, Johnnie Walker Blue King George V is a truly exceptional offering from the famous distillery. King George V was first released for the travel retail market and commemorates the royal warrant the company received in 1934. Pungent toffee apple and malt come through in the nose, with just a hint of smoke and the palate is beautifully soft, buttery and melt-in-the-mouth sweet with toffee fruit, malt and harmonious balance. Cream-laced spices lead into a long malty finish to savour.
The 13th release in the Parker's Heritage series, and the first rye from the range. For this expression, the 8 year old rye whiskey has been matured in level 5 char barrels. These casks are charred for a massive 90 seconds, compared to just 40 seconds for a level 3 char barrel (the standard used at Heaven Hill).
Canada’s most famous whisky, Canadian Club has a flavour which fans will know all too well and newcomers will certainly learn to love. Its aroma is sweet with warm notes of barley sugar and biting aniseed, alongside vegetal freshness. When you take the first sip it’s surprisingly gentle, a mellow flavour with dark sugar, essence of rum and winter spice coming through. It’s a generally medium-bodied whisky with many pleasing flavour notes to enjoy.
One of the premium offerings from the famous Patron tequila distillery, Gran Patron Platinum uses the finest blue agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco. Triple distilled and then rested for a short time in oak tanks, Gran Patron Platinum is wonderfully smooth and full-bodied. The nose is full of that fresh agave teamed with citrus and fresh fruit and the flavour follows suit with the agave taking centre stage, citrus and fruit following on. Its finish is long and spiced with white pepper.
Tomintoul is a young and enjoyable single malt, with just 10 years spent maturing. Known as the gentle dram, Tomintoul has been crafted and matured in bourbon casks delivering a flavour which is clean yet creamy and well-balanced. On the nose you’ll get toffee-laced citrus with a light hint of raisin and on tasting the palate is truly clean, with sweetness balanced gently with oak spice. The spicy notes linger into the finish, providing a peppy end note.
We assume that this new no age statement peated Tomintoul must be similar to the Old Ballantruan but at a reduced strength. Either way , at this price it must be worth a punt for the peatsters amongst you .
Dried fruits and ginger, with a hint of citrus, vanilla and cinnamon
Rich dried fruits with spice, clove, orange and wood smoke
Full and lingering with dried fruits and sweet toffee, ginger and a hint of wood smoke
Maraschino Luxardo is a classic Italian liqueur and is presented in its traditional way, straw covered bottle and all. The clear hues hide a flavour which is simply bursting with marasca cherries and a typically pungent aroma in which the cherries seem to invite you to take that first sip. Smooth on the palate initially, leading into a sharpness which is short lived but satisfying. It’s the aroma of this one which will have you back for another sip, lingering long after tasting.
Relaunched in 2013, Black Bottle Blended Scotch whisky now features a balanced mix of fruitiness and spice alongside the peaty Islay notes that the brand has been known for. This change in direction is a return to Black Bottle's past, as it is said to have been inspired by what the whisky was like when it was made all the way back in 1879. This has also inspired the new old-style black glass bottle, which gave the whisky its name.
