Brighton Gin was born of a passion for gin, and a passion for the place where we live and play – we wanted to create a gin that embodied the spirit of Brighton: Unusual, playful and fiercely independent.
Where did it all start?
It started with months of experimentation with different ingredients, combinations, distilling techniques and approaches, and more than one or two accidents along the way (but we lived to tell the tale!) and lots of trying out recipes on fellow gin-loving friends until we finally hit the perfect blend.
Brighton Gin is made with 100% British organic wheat spirit – super smooth, and without any of the nasties that can give you a sore and sorry head – which we re-distill with juniper, fresh orange and lime peel, locally-grown coriander seed (the first UK commercially grown coriander seed in over 200 years) and milk thistle, which is indigenous to the South Downs and renowned for its kindness to the liver function.
Each bottle is filled by hand, we stick each label on and dip every one in wax ourselves: no factory production lines here. We also try to keep our carbon footprint down by delivering in Brighton and Hove on our specially adapted gin bike – that’s a lot of huffing and puffing up some of those hills!
We also found that drinking Brighton Gin neat with just ice and a twist of orange was a rather nice thing to do, and many of our drinkers just prefer to do that. But it works well with a splash of quality tonic, and we recommend a slice of orange to bring out the flavour of the citrus botanicals at their very best.
Our top quality ingredients, attention to detail to make each bottle of Brighton Gin just perfect, and our small batch production make Brighton Gin a premium product. But we hope you agree that it’s well worth it.
