The London masters of gin, Hayman's Gin, is offering gin-paired dinners every night this month, in the incredibly British surrounds of the Lord Dudley Hotel.
The Woollahra pub's recent English garden-inspired refurb provides an idyllic setting to indulge in the spirit made by the distiller entrenched in London history. Established during the gin craze in the 19th century, Hayman's Gin has been run by an unbroken five-generation lineage of gin producers.
Until October 31, you'll be able to sample a number of classic gin cocktails with Hayman's such as their Sloe and Tonic, best paired with the lamb rump; the French 75 paired with cured salmon or a negroni paired with pork and veal terrine.
As you taste your way through the distiller's dry, sloe and 'Old Tom' gins with different tinctures and tonics, you'll also be prompted to make some tasting notes to remember the botanical and food pairings you enjoyed the most. What's more, prices are great value — grab an entrée and a cocktail for $25, a main and cocktail for $40 or opt for the Supper Club Special featuring an entrée, main and two cocktails for $60.
