Our gin story
Brixton is a million things to a million people. That's what makes it special.
As long-term residents of this amazing community, we wouldn't dream of making any definitive claim as to what makes Brixton remarkable or why its unique.
What we wanted to do was make a really distinctive and delicious gin that would do the place justice and in a small way, supports the local economy. We also wanted to find out what we could grow and source locally to make our gin.
That's why we have partnered with the small family firm that makes Brixton Bees raw honey and why Urban Growth, an organisation that transforms neglected spaces into teeming gardens, is growing botanicals in Brixton that will go into our gin.
In choosing a recipe for Brixton Gin, we wanted to create something that was distinctive; a memorable taste that you could recall the next day. That's why we opted to use wood violets and hibiscus in our botanical mix. They give our gin delicate, floral notes to go alongside the more traditional juniper and citrus expressions. We believe it is a genuinely unique - and delicious.
We call it Brixton Dry Gin. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
