Brighton Gin was created through a love of gin, but also founded in the spirit of the values that Brighton holds dear and which make the city what it is: independent, fun-loving, open-minded and adventurous.
Our mission is to take The Spirit of Brighton to the world with a focus on sustainable and ethical production.
We wanted to create a premium product that could be enjoyed by gin enthusiasts and casual tipplers alike; a drink that’s refreshing, nods back to the history of gin but at the same time is thoroughly modern and forward-looking.
Handmade British Craft Gin
In that same spirit, we were determined to run our company in the same way. We don’t have industrial factory lines as all our gin is hand-made in small batches just as it was from the very first day it was created; we distil, fill, wax and label each bottle by hand to ensure it’s of the best quality; and we like to work with our customers – bars, outlets and drinkers – in the same personal way.
Fairly, Locally & Sustainably
We use fairly traded products, sourcing locally where possible, and using high-grade ingredients including organic wheat spirit as the base for our gin. Brighton Gin is certified vegan by the Vegan Society (and yes, that also includes our wax and the gum for our labels).
We reuse every bit of cardboard that arrives into our distillery as inserts for gin cases and packing of web orders.
Our bottles are made in England from at least 75% recycled glass, and our distillation process uses a special water cooling system which means we can recycle water rather than pouring it down the drain.
We operate a Refill Station which enables us to reduce our carbon footprint even further - and you can be a big part of it!
We deliver sustainably wherever we can with our gin push and eCargo bike, and the residues from our distillation process are composted.
We Use Green Power, too!
"As the home of one of our largest offices and regional energy tariffs, Brighton holds a special place in our hearts. We are thrilled, therefore, to be powering the distillation of Brighton Gin with locally sourced, 100% renewable energy – a fantastic homegrown business whose local, sustainable objectives truly align with ours.”

City & Community
As part of our commitment to the city which helped make Brighton Gin popular, we support community events such as beach cleans and local charities such as the Rainbow Trust, donating a proportion of proceeds from our specially designed Brighton Pride bottles. We have also introduced a way for good causes to contact us with requests for support from Brighton Gin.
During the COVID-19 crisis we turned our hand to making vegan hand sanitisers made from a 75 % essence of our gin and essential oils. It is run as a not-for-profit project, and thanks to your purchases we have been able to donate thousands of hand sanitiser sprays to key and frontline workers. #sprayitforward
