Left-Handed Gin    (April Fool's Day - 2019)

Hayman Distillery announced that in a "bid to better support the left-handed bartending community" it would be making its English Gins available in left-handed bottles.

Company founder James Hayman explained: "I think many of us know or have in the past met a left-handed bartender and I have always had great sympathy for the challenges they face living in a right-handed world. The bartending community has always been kind to Hayman’s – this is our way of giving back; of helping every bartender to become their very best professional self – regardless of whether they are right or left handed."

The company added that it would continue to make its gins available in right-hand bottles.
