Officially the UK’s best gin as voted for in the 2017 People’s Drinks awards, our city’s very own Brighton Gin which is filled, waxed and labelled by hand in the city’s first (legal!) distillery has just bought out a new half bottle in time for Christmas. Priced at just £22 and perfectly handbag-sized, the new 350ml bottle makes a perfect gift for those looking for a more generous measure than the hugely popular stocking-filler miniatures which at 50ml sell for around £5.
Made from 100% organic grain spirit, juniper, fresh orange and lime peel, locally-grown coriander and milk thistle, Brighton Gin is smooth, gentle and mellow enough to be sipped neat over ice. It is particularly delicious as part of a classic G&T, served with a slice of orange – the better to bring out the citrus botanicals – and works brilliantly in a Martini, a Negroni or any number of cocktails, recipes for which can be found at Brightongin.com. Or why not create your own and share them on Twitter @brightongin, Facebook at brightongin or Instagram at brightonginstergram.
The lovely team at Brighton Gin are giving away the ultimate gin lovers’ goody bag including the full bottle, the half bottle and two miniatures plus a T shirt, bag and stick of Brighton Gin rock. To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question:
