What a gem in the heart of Balham! Close in walking distance and something a bit different to just another evening at a cool bar. Loved hearing the history of haymans and seeing all the amazing machinery used to make the most delicious gin. The guys really knew their stuff and it was a fun atmosphere. The slow gin with lemonade was my favourite of the night!! The space was great and I can totally see some good events being hosted there so I will keep an eye on what is upcoming and definitely Keen for a Mums night here!!

A thoroughly enjoyable tour. The staff are extremely knowledgeable very friendly/helpful. I am an event manager and the venue is perfect for parties, groups or entertaining clients, I will definately be keeping this in mind for the future. A really enjoyable evening and I would definitely recommend!

Had a great night with friends learning about Gin and how it’s made at the new Hayman’s Gin Distillery. Very fun tour starting with a welcome drink, a look around the distillery and finishing off with a taste of Hayman’s Gins. Easy walk from Balham station. Definitely worth a visit.

An excellent evening of entertainment at Hayman's Distillery. The tour gave us an insight into the history of gin, an interactive demonstration of how it's made and a little taster to keep us hydrated. Really impressive set-up in an area of Balham I never knew existed! Highly recommended.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a fabulous evening at Hayman's stunning new distillery in Balham - wow what a place! Sam and Tim were our hosts and both were extremely welcoming, friendly and knowledgable with a huge amount of passion for Haymans, the history of gin making and of course the science behind the making of the gin and the botanicals which are used. It was an extremely informative evening, pitched at just the right level and the tasting was amazing too. Couldn't recommend the tour and Hayman's gin highly enough. London Dry was my favourite and the Sloe Gin was a triumph! Will definitely be back ... sooner rather than later I hope!
