By the 1860s, the time at which the Hayman family was supplying gin to officers in the Royal Navy, the dock at Deptford was a shadow of its former glory. Shipbuilding was entirely shut down at Deptford by 1869. No longer the center of shipbuilding, it did have an important function as a victualling yard, which it continued to do so until a century later. So naturally, if your gin was to make it on to the ship, it needed to go through Deptford.
