Brighton Gin was created through a love of gin, but also founded in the spirit of the values that Brighton holds dear and which make the city what it is: independent, fun-loving, open-minded and adventurous.
We wanted to create a premium product that could be enjoyed by gin enthusiasts and casual tipplers alike; a drink that’s refreshing, nods back to the history of gin but at the same time is thoroughly modern and forward-looking.
In that same spirit, we were determined to run our company in the same way. We don’t have industrial factory lines as all our gin is hand-made in small batches just as it was from the very first day it was created; we distil, fill, and label each bottle by hand to ensure it’s of the best quality; and we like to work with our customers – bars, outlets and drinkers – in the same personal way.
We use fairly traded products, sourcing locally where possible, and using high-grade organic ingredients. Brighton Gin is certified vegan by the Vegan Society (and yes, that also includes our wax and the gum for your labels).
We deliver sustainably wherever we can with our gin bikes, and the residues from our distillation process are composted. Our bottles are made in England from 40% recycled glass, and our distillation process uses a special water cooling system which means we can recycle water rather than pouring it down the drain.
We believe our lovingly-made gin speaks for itself, and the array of awards we’ve won – locally, nationally and internationally – bears that out.
And as part of our commitment to the city which helped make Brighton Gin popular, we support community events such as beach cleans and local charities such as the Rainbow Trust, donating a proportion of proceeds from our specially designed Brighton Pride bottles.
We hope you enjoy drinking Brighton Gin as much as we enjoy making it, and if we please you, do tell your friends, and if we can do something better in the future, please let us know.
