It’s Our Birthday
It’s our 3rd birthday and we’d love to share with you all our achievements over the last 3 years!
Founded at the end of 2014 by five gin-loving Brightonians, Brighton Gin has gone from strength to strength. Since sitting around the kitchen table with a still bought from Ebay, experimenting with botanicals and trying to create something that tasted vaguely like gin, we’ve come a long way!!
Once the recipe was perfect, the bottles made, labels created and wax melted, our very first bottle was sold on December 11th 2014! Since then, we’ve released our adorable 50ml mini bottle and last month, our 350ml half size bottle.
PRIDE! As proud supporters and members of the LGBTQ+ community in Brighton, and our founder & MD, Kathy, being an active voice in this community, we’ve been proud supporters of Brighton Pride for 2 years in a row! We’ve done this through our limited edition Pride Label and a donation to The Rainbow Fund.
We’ve won some awards! These include the gold medal at the 2016 Spirits Business Gin Masters, two silver medals at the 2015 International Wine & Spirit Competition, and most recently, the gold for packaging at the 2017 International Wine & Spirits Competition, along with the overall White Spirits packaging trophy, the silver award for best London Dry Gin and bronze for best Gin & Tonic. We were also voted Best Gin in the UK at The People’s Choice Awards 2017!
Our team has grown by 300%! In 2014, we had 5 ginistas, and now we have 15! Our team ranges from 21 to 74 and are all wonderfully passionate! Meet our team!
We’re stocked in some pretty amazing places! Some of our very first stockists include, Quaff in Hove, Hisbe and Mulhollands and now we’re sold in over 400 locations across the UK, including Harvey Nichols, Marks & Spencer and Fortnum & Mason!
We are so proud of everything we’ve achieved! Thank you to all our fellow gin-lovers and supporters!
