Burnt Martini

by Charly Thieme on 0 Comments

Burns Night is all about Scotch, neeps & tatties, and poems, of course. We have created this gin & whisky cocktail for you to try, it's smokey and crisp and daring (and, as usual, accessible)!

Brighton Gin Burnt Martini Cocktail


The evening of January 25th is when Scots (and others!) everywhere hold Burns Suppers in honour of the birth of Scotland's favourite poet and son, Robert Burns. Born on this day in 1759, one of seven children, he is most famous for writing the New Year favourite Auld Lang Syne.

One of our favourite part is when everybody gives his haggis poems a go, including best Scottish accent of course.

To help you feel confident when addressing the haggis (or recite the reply from the lassies), here is a bit of help from our friend Lesley Hart to get you started.



  • 50ml Brighton Gin Pavilion Strength 40%
  • 20ml peated Scotch, perhaps a whisky from Islay
  • 15ml dry white vermouth
  • garnish: citrus peel - grapefruit, lemon, whatever you have lying around

How to Make

Stir all cocktail ingredients over ice in a mixing glass/big jar. Strain into a chilled martini/Nick & Nora glass. Garnish with a citrus peel, we used grapefruit here.


Available in 700ml & 350ml Bottles
Brighton Gin is available in regular 700ml bottles, as well as our handy 350ml midi bottle size, perfect for any number of cocktails. And for the perfect finish, why not serve our ginspiring cocktails in our Brighton Gin glasses!
