Small batch, super premium Brighton Gin will be celebrating World Gin Day (10 June) in style this year, proud to have taken top place and be voted The People’s Choice Gin in the 2017 People’s Drinks Awards.

Founded by a quintet of gin-loving Brightonians in 2014, Brighton Gin is made from organic British grain spirit, juniper, fresh orange and lime peel, locally-grown coriander seed and liver-friendly milk thistle.

Distilled beside the seaside, each bottle of Brighton Gin is filled, labelled and wax sealed by hand, the distinctive blue colour being that of Brighton’s seafront railings.

Although Brighton has taken its gin to its heart and it is stocked and served throughout the city, Brighton Gin is distilled for good time boys and girls everywhere, and the team is thrilled to have their gin confirmed as the nation’s favourite as voted for by the public in the People’s Drinks Awards.

Founder and distiller Kathy Caton said: ‘Brighton is such a creative, free-thinking place with a long-standing heritage of invention and pleasure-seeking throughout its history. With Brighton Gin we wanted to create the best possible quality spirit this city deserves and we’re ecstatic that people across the UK have voted us as the country’s best gin.’

Versatile and adaptable, Brighton Gin is particularly delicious as a classic G&T served with a fine tonic and a slice of orange, the better to bring out the flavour of its citrus botanicals. It’s also smooth enough to be served neat over ice and makes the finest of Negronis. Locals often drink it as a unique Brighton Gin Rocktail – with tonic, ice and a chunk of Brighton rock.

RRP £40.00. 40% ABV. Stockists include Majestic Wines, Harvey Nichols, Fortnum & Mason, Master of Malt and most fine independents throughout Brighton & Hove. Full stockists details can be found at
