Small batch, super premium Brighton Gin has created just over 400 limited edition bottles of the UK’s favourite gin (as voted for by the public in the 2017 People’s Drinks Awards) – with specially created rainbow labels and pink wax seals to celebrate Brighton Pride, the UK’s biggest Pride festival.

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+HIV organisations.

Brash, beautiful and brilliant Brighton Pride 2017, welcomed over 300,000 participants and spectators, from across the world to the city to come together and fundraise, celebrate, campaign and party with Pride.

The Brighton Pride bottles from Brighton Gin, recently voted The People’s Choice Gin in the 2017 People’s Drinks Awards, went on sale at independent shops across the city from Tuesday August 1.

Snap them up from independent shops in Brighton and Hove including Quaff in Hove and Fiveways, Hisbe on London Road, Ten Green Bottles on Jubilee Street or Twenty One Wines.

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 liver-friendly milk thistle.

Founder, distiller and Out In Brighton presenter Kathy Caton, 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 LGBT+ community and voluntary sector”.

Versatile and adaptable, Brighton Gin is particularly delicious as a classic G&T served with a fine tonic and a slice of orange to bring out the flavour of its citrus botanicals. It’s also smooth enough to be served neat over ice and makes the finest of Negronis. Locals often drink it as a unique Brighton Gin Rocktail – with tonic, ice and a chunk of Brighton rock.
