Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen

Distillers & Spirit Producers

Brighton Gin Company


Brighton Gin Company, Brighton, Sussex, England, UK.


The story started, like many others before and like many will in the future too, between friends over drinks in a bar. This particular story began in 2013 with 5 friends (and local residents) discussing their desire for the city of Brighton - a popular seaside resort on the Southern coast of England - to have it’s own Gin. Fortunately the friends all have backgrounds that when combined make for a formidable partnership for making and marketing a great spirit:

  • Dr. Ian Barry (also known as Dr. Easy), a physicist and distiller;
  • Helen Chesshire, a Public Relations specialist in the drinks industry;
  • Jonathan Ray, drinks editor for The Spectator (having previously worked for the Daily Telegraph, The Field and GQ);
  • Kathy Caton, a bar owner/restaurateur and broadcaster; and
  • Nigel Lambe, an entrepreneur (having owned a Coffee company and Brewery).

Even with this formidable team it took nearly a year to gain a distilling licence (issued summer 2014) and 6 months to create and prepare the Gin, launched at the end of 2014.
