Country of origin: England
Small batch, super-premium, award-winning Brighton Gin – distilled beside the seaside –is genuinely hand made from the purest grain spirit, juniper, fresh orange and lime peel, locally-grown coriander seed and milk thistle. Each bottle is filled, labelled and wax sealed by hand, the distinctive blue/green colour being that of Brighton’s famous seafront railings.
Named as Lux Magazine’s Handmade Gin of the Year 2018 and the UK’s best gin in the 2017 People’s Drinks awards, Brighton Gin is super smooth, gentle and approachable and is mellow enough to be sipped neat over ice. It is particularly delicious as part of a classic G&T, served with a fine tonic and a slice of orange – the better to bring out the citrus botanicals – and works brilliantly in a Martini, a Negroni and a French 75. Locals often drink it as a unique Brighton Gin Rocktail – with tonic, ice and a chunk of Brighton Gin peppermint rock.
Brighton Gin has garnered many awards in its short life. These include gold and double silver medals (for gin and gin and tonic) at the 2018 International Wine and Spirit Competition, the gold medal at the 2016 Spirits Business Gin Masters, and took the overall trophy for packaging at the 2017 International Wine and Spirits Competition. Brighton Gin took silver in the 2018 Berlin Spirits Competition and won a star in the 2018 Great Taste Awards.
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. This ethos is part of our core brand values. We are building an ethical, sustainable business for Brighton that is bringing a brand new manufacturing sector to the city, and our move in to export helps spread the name of ‘brand Brighton’ beyond our local and national borders. Brighton Gin is a brand build on solid, ethical values, a category-leading product and made by a genuinely diverse workforce who we hope are with us for the full journey into the unknown!
Although Brighton has taken its gin to its heart, it is distilled for good time boys and girls everywhere. It is the only gin served in both the British Airways i360 tower on Brighton’s seafront and the Brighton Dome concert hall and can be found in London in such celebrated establishments as The Holborn Dining Room, the Corinthia Hotel and the Kensington as well as the Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland, the Atlas in Singapore and Dr. Fern’s Gin Parlour in Hong Kong.
We love our gin as much as we love our city – and we hope wherever you’re drinking your Brighton Gin, that it deliver the taste of the spirit of Brighton.
Come and Brighton your life!
