GIN MADE 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 embodied the spirit of Brighton: Unusual, playful and fiercely independent.
Where did it all start?
Brighton Gin is made with a 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.
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.
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!
