The first legal distillery in Brighton making award-winning Brighton Gin with the world's first all-female team.
Brighton Gin was launched by five gin-loving Brightonians in December 2014 before being named by the Sunday Times as one of its top three gins of 2015 and won two silver medals at the 2015 International Wine and Spirit Competition. It also won a gold medal at the 2016 Spirits Business Gin Masters and is the only spirit served on board the British Airways i360 on Brighton’s seafront.
The handmade, small batch gin is produced at Brighton’s first (legal) distillery by the UK’s only pair of female distillers, Kathy Caton and Helen Chesshire (winner of the Rising Star of the Year award at the 2016 International Spirits Challenge), using organic British grain. Its botanicals include juniper, the peel of fresh oranges and limes, locally-grown coriander seed and milk thistle, indigenous to the South Downs and well-known for its liver-cleansing properties. Each bottle is filled, wax-sealed and labelled by hand, the colour of both wax and label being that of Brighton’s distinctive seafront railings.
Our ideal garnish is a slice of fresh orange to lift the fresh orange botanical but we also love the Brighton Gin Rocktail - with our own Brighton rock - which is really quite bonkers but works!
