DISTIL. NO 9
SMALL COCKTAIL GUIDE - BRIGHTON
NINE BRIGHTON BARS YOU SHOULD GET TO KNOW
Brighton’s origins were as a small south coast fishing village, but it was transformed at the beginning of the 19th century when the Prince Regent, later George IV, decided that it was the perfect place to indulge in his rather hedonistic lifestyle away from London. His Pavilion still dominates the approach to the sea front, but the narrow lanes that are close by offer a very different take on life. Brighton retains something of the Prince Regent’s will to enjoy life to the full, and its bar and cocktail scene is extraordinary for a place of its size. Bartenders now get to travel the world to demonstrate their skills. It is a community of highly skilled individuals who care about their trade. This mobility of information has given countries around the world the ability to share trends and you can see the very best from around the world in any major city. Mixology is now reaching ever greater heights. It’s not just the drink, but also the experience. Starting in this world of mixology it is important to get the first steps right, and first of all comes the balance of the cocktail. Vodka is the best spirit to start with and is like a blank canvas on which to paint your masterpiece. Fresh juices, syrups, tonics, fruit, spices and herbs all help make a cocktail individual. With every ingredient, it is important you choose a high quality one, just like a quality vodka. To help you with mixing your own drinks at home we have put together this guide with some of the very best mixologists. The Small Cocktail Guide is made to showcase the very best and their skills. It is a guide with nine Brighton bartenders and nine cocktails with a base of Distil No.9 vodka. All the cocktails are presented differently and each of them has its own unique approach. It is important to note that the Mixology of No. 9 is not a competition, and every page shares an unforgettable experience and impressions.
