Kathy Caton, founder of Brighton Gin, has received an MBE in this year’s New Year’s Honours List for her services to trade and the community.

Writing on Facebook, Brighton Gin said: “What an achievement, and we are so happy for her to receive this amazing recognition – it’s been a very turbulent 12 years with Brighton Gin and Kathy has been tireless (despite being very tired), kind, engaged, resilient and strong-willed. We are honoured to work for such an inspiring person.

“It’s been a particularly tough year for us and we are so grateful to still be here, and this is just a lovely way of ending 2023. Onwards now into 2024!!

“Ps. Thank you to the people who nominated Kathy, you know who you are.”
