Brighton is the Pavilion, the Pier and the Duke of York's. It's the Prince Regent, Laurence Olivier and Max Miller. It's Phoebe Hessel, Mrs Fitzherbert and Martha Gunn. It's Brighton & Hove (actually), Mods & Rockers and the Seagulls. It's the Veteran Car Run, the London to Brighton and Brighton Races. It's the Downs, the sea and Brighton Rock. It's Pride, naughty weekends, illicit pleasures and now.... it's Brighton Gin!
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 and approachable. Brighton Gin, whose other botanicals include angelica, lime and milk thistle (well-known for cleansing the liver – helping you to detox as you tox, so to speak), makes a deeply refreshing G&T – in which instance, we recommend serving it with a slice of orange to bring the fresh orange peel botanical to the fore. Versatile and adaptable, Brighton Gin also works brilliantly as a Martini and is exceptional as part of a Negroni. This is a subtle, ruminative gin and, thanks to its softness, Brighton Gin is also delicious sipped neat, over ice with a slice of orange.
