Guests will have an opportunity to experience the latest advances in 3D scanning, with the opportunity to recreate yourself as an uncannily detailed 3D printed replica.

Hayman’s Gin
Hayman’s Gin will be taking over the bar and proving that time-weathered classics should sometimes be left that way. Every one of Hayman’s gins benefits from a traditional two-day process – just as they would have in 1863, allowing the flavours to develop and marry before the gentle heat of the small-batch copper pot still is introduced. Every gin is distilled to a family recipe dating back over 150 years for absolute integrity of flavour. Every gin is distilled using 100% English wheat, prized for its neutral character that allows the botanical brilliance to shine through.
