To celebrate the UK’s biggest Pride Festival, Brighton Gin is once again releasing a limited edition of just 500 exclusively designed Brighton Pride bottles.
This year’s label has been created to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots which mark the birth of the modern LGBTQ movement.
Designed by Brighton artist Hizze Fletcher-King, it features an image of Marsha P. Johnson, activist of colour and self-identified drag queen, who was a prominent figure in the 1969 Stonewall uprising, when New York police raided a gay bar and provoked a rebellion.
Clear and bright in the glass, the subtle notes of juniper come tot he fore as you swirl, releasing sweet-scented fresh citrus and a touch of spice. The persistent hints of orange make this gin gentle to taste.
Each bottle will also be hand-finished with a shiny gold wax top, which you’ll only find on this year’s Pride bottle.
A percentage from every bottle sold will be donated to The Rainbow Fund, the Brighton and Hove based grant-giving fund for local LGBTQ+ and HIV/AIDS organisations and good causes.
When they’re not too busy supporting the LGBT community, Brighton Gin brings you not only great gin but also delicious heart-shaped gin lollipops to satisfy that sweet tooth.
The Brighton Pride bottles are super-limited, so you’ll have to be quick if you want to get one for yourself.
Available on the Brighton Gin website for £39.00 (700 ml, 40% ABV).
