The makers of Brighton Gin are to produce a special limited edition to tie in with the Brighton Pride celebration this summer.
They have produced just over 400 of the special release that carries rainbow labels and pink wax seals. They will be available ahead of Brighton Pride which runs from August 4 to 6.
A percentage of the sales from each bottle will be donated to The Rainbow Fund, the Brighton and Hove-based grant-giving fund for local LGBT and HIV/Aids organisations.
Founded by five gin-loving Brightonians in 2014, Brighton Gin is made from organic grain spirit, juniper, fresh orange and lime peel, locally-grown coriander seed and milk thistle. It has ABV of 40%.
Co-founder and distiller Kathy Caton, who presents LGBTQ show Out In Brighton on Radio Reverb, said: “Brighton Gin was created for good-time boys and girls everywhere. We wanted to celebrate the free-thinking, campaigning and hedonistic spirit of Brighton, values which have made the city the obvious setting for the UK’s biggest Pride festival.
“We’re so proud of that – and want to contribute to the essential work of the Rainbow Fund in supporting the city’s LGBTQ community and voluntary sector.”
