Celebrate Brighton Pride 2019 with our Limited Edition bottles

15/07/2019

Brighton Pride 2019 is here and we’re thrilled to celebrate it with our 2019 Limited Edition Pride bottles.

 
In aid of the Rainbow Fund and celebrating the UK’s biggest Pride Festival, we are releasing just 500 Limited Edition collector’s bottles of our 40% Pavilion Strength Brighton Gin.
This year we’ve teamed up with Brighton based artist Hizze Fletcher-King to create a label to recognise the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots which mark the birth of the Gay Liberation Movement. The label features an image of Marsha P. Johnson, LGBTQ activist of colour and self-identified drag queen. Marsha was a prominent figure in the 1969 Stonewall uprising, when New York police raided the Stonewall Inn and provoked the start of riots and demonstrations.
Brighton Gin’s founder, Kathy Caton said “We’re proud to support our LGBTQ communities and give something back to the city which has taken us to its heart. And by featuring Marsha P. Johnson on the label, we hope people will ask more questions about who she was and the origins of the modern day LGBTQ movement.”
The label will be on a limited run of 500 bottles, each one capped off with a special gold wax top. 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.
Label artist Hizze Fletcher-King said “Women have continued to be erased from their historical importance and Marsha P Johnson stands for that. While we celebrate Pride and the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots let’s remember that ‘Pride is a Protest’ which seems to have been forgotten.”

The limited edition collectable Brighton Pride bottle is available direct from us, and when they’re gone, they’re gone!

Order on a working day by noon for same-day dispatch.
