Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen


Judges Gin

Burlington Drinks and Hayman Distillers.


This Gin is from the James Brookes range of spirits, named after a family relative (of the Burroughs/Haymans family) who lived in the 1800’s.

Haymans have been distilling Gin in London for 150 years and started with James Burroughs (of Beefeater Gin fame) as James Burroughs Ltd. The company was sold in 1987 to Whitbread, although part of the business was retained and renamed Hayman’s. Today Christopher Hayman is supported by his son (James) and daughter (Miranda), the great-great-grandchildren of James Burroughs. This is the longest serving family owned gin distiller in England today.


Distilled from grain spirit using a secret family recipe.

The Gin is presented in a tall clear rectangular bottle with a large white label. The label has red colored writing with gold/bronze accents. This has a look and feel that strongly resembles the Beefeater brand.

Tasting Notes

Unfortunately we have not tasted this yet, so are unable to provide any details. It will be interesting to see how this compares with other offerings by Hayman’s and see if there is any similarity in taste with Beefeater, beyond just the packaging.
