GIN HANDMADE WITH PASSION
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 embodies the Spirit of Brighton: unusual, playful and fiercely independent.
Where did it all start?
It started back in 2013 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.
People often ask: What is Brighton Gin made of? We only use certified 100% organic pure 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.
A twist of orangeWe 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. We’ve also got some great cocktail ideas for you to try which perfectly suit the citrus and botanicals in Brighton Gin.
Quality IngredientsOur top quality ingredients, attention to detail to make each bottle of Brighton Gin just perfect, and our hand-made small batch production make Brighton Gin a premium product. But we hope you agree that it’s well worth it.
Brighton is the Pavilion, the Pier and the Duke of York’s. It’s the Prince Regent, Laurence Olivier and Max Miller. It’s Phoebe Hessel, Mrs Fitzherbert and Martha Gunn. It’s Brighton & Hove (actually), Mods & Rockers and the Seagulls. It’s the Veteran Car Run, the London to Brighton and Brighton Races. It’s the Downs, the sea and Brighton Rock. It’s Pride, naughty weekends, illicit pleasures and now…
