Brighton Gin

70cl bottle: £37.95

Brighton Gin is the very opposite of Gordons and has put great gin back on the map. Made by a small team of fanatics in Brighton in tiny quantities with fresh juniper, orange peel, angelica, lime, milk thistle and other locally sourced organic spices, the flavours jump out – don’t spoil the best gin & tonic you will ever taste with inferior tonic water!

Our Tasting Notes

Clear and bright in the glass, the subtle notes of juniper come to the fore as you swirl,
releasing sweet-scented fresh citrus and a touch of spice. The persistent hints of orange make this gin gentle, approachable and delicious.

The Brighton Beach

It’s spring and the sun has at last begun to show a bit of well-turned ankle and we’re starting to dream about heading to our beloved Brighton beach (I mean, who needs sand when you can have shingle?). And so we’ve made sure that our latest Serve of the Month is ideal for such a capricious time of year: long, cool and refreshing in case it’s sunny; warm, spicy and invigorating in case it’s not.

50ml Brighton Gin
King's Ginger Liqueur
Fever Tree Tonic
Fever Tree Ginger Beer

Pour the Brighton Gin into a tall glass. Add a tiny, hint of a whisper of a suspicion of King’s Ginger Liqueur. Top up with Fever Tree Tonic and Fever Tree Ginger Beer – half and half – add some ice, stir briefly and garnish with a sprig of mint and a slice of lime.

Serve with a jaunty straw and expectant grin.
