Time for a gin...
"When we first started developing gin recipes we realised pretty quickly that we had quite different ideas of what makes a perfect gin. So we ended up with two gins, 'The Chemist' and 'The Biologist' named after us!
NEW!! Gin of Paradise
Sussex Dry Gin 45%abv
The new addition to our range!
Gin of Paradise celebrates "Grains of Paradise". a distinct spice from the West African coast. Named after their mythical origins in the Garden of Eden, the citrusy-peppery spice enhances all the botanical flavours and adds a tingly warmth. Distilled with Sweet Almonds for body and sweetness, this rich opulent gin has a big flavour and is slightly stronger at 45%.
Juniper, Coriander, Grains of Paradise, Sweet Almonds, Lemon peel and Orris root.
Perfectly matched with a premium or aromatic tonic and a slice of lemon.
Sussex Dry Gin 42%abv
A bright lively citrus gin. Grapefruit peel is vapour distilled to capture the fresh flavour. Delicate floral essences from Chamomile and Gorse flowers combine with Juniper and Coriander for a smooth clean finish. Cinnamon adds a little spice!
Juniper, Coriander, Orris root, Gorse flower, Chamomile, Grapefruit zest, Cinnamon and Sweet Orange peel
Perfect for a refreshing G&T, The grapefruit citrus zestyness of The Biologist shines through even the strongest flavour tonic. We suggest a Refreshingly Light or Mediterranean tonic with a garnish of pink grapefruit or orange.
Sussex Dry Gin 42%abv
A smooth, balanced, complex gin. Earthy layers and citrus top notes are complimented by a liquorice sweetness. The botanicals are gently vapour distilled in a series of batches for a complex warm flavour. Chamomile and Gorse give flavour depth with Sweet Orange and Lemon zest top notes. Natural Liquorice Root gives balance without being too strong.
Juniper, Coriander, Orris root, Angelica root, Gorse, chamomile, liquorice, lemon and sweet orange
Ideal for sipping, a G&T, and makes an excellent Martini.
Serve with Connoisseurs or Valencia Orange tonic, and garnish with blood orange and lemon.
Miniature Gift Set
This perfect little set of four miniatures (two Biologist and two Chemist) makes a great gift or a good way to try our gins!

Serra da Canastra, Brazil
Cold-Brew Coffee Liqueur
Deliciously smooth with a mellow sweetness.
We have worked with local coffee experts at 44 Poets Speciality Coffee to find the perfect ethically sourced coffee, and identify the perfect extraction process for this smooth liqueur. Their shop is in Poets Corner, Hove. Just around the corner from the distillery!
Paulo Henrique Cruz has a small coffee farm in the mountainous Serra da Canastra micro-region, nestled between the large coffee regions in Brazil. We've used the Yellow Icatu variety from his farm, grown at 1185 meters altitude and prepared using natural processes.
The coffee beans are expertly roasted by Craft House Coffee, Sussex speciality small-batch coffee roaster, based just outside of Brighton. Accurately ground for our special 20 hour cold-brew extraction method to produce a mellow, less bitter coffee taste. Blended with distilled English wheat spirit and Demerara sugar syrup for a refined, smooth liqueur.
Drink neat, over ice, in an Espresso Martini, or makes an amazing Tiramisu!
It's amazingly lemony!
The zest from organic lemons is slowly steeped in British wheat spirit to release the delicious essential oils. The zesty spirit is then mixed with sugar and pure water to find the perfect bittersweet balance.
The organic lemons are hand peeled, ensuring that we get only the zest and none of the bitter pith. Therefore we have to add less sugar so it is not sticky-sweet but wonderfully balanced.
Look out for our limited editions...
Christmas Gin is back for 2019!
Our first Christmas gin, launched for Christmas 2018, proved to be very popular! Distilled with loads of sweet and bitter orange, nutmeg, cinnamon coriander and allspice. This is an opulent and warming gin with hints of Christmas cake, Christmas pudding and mulled wine!
Described often as "Christmas in a bottle" it is bottled at 43% to hold in all the orange flavour, and makes a lovely winter G&T.
This recipe has been perfected over 20 years!
We've always been disappointed in the sloe gins available in the shops, they've never matched up to our recipe! So we've stuck to that for Madame Jennifer Sloe Gin.
Hand picked Sussex sloes are infused over many months. Most sloe gins are at about 25% abv. Ours is a hearty 40% so it's very warming and not too sweet.
The 2018 batch sold out quickly. The 2019 batch is coming along well!
Batch No 3
Back in spring 2018 we were running our first development and scale-up batches on our new still. We were approached by a local supper-club to provide some gin for an event based on local sourced products, so we provided some of development batch number 3.
Having heard back that the people at the supper club wanted to buy some we listed it on our website.
It's all sold out now!
