AN award-winning company has created a new limited edition gin bottle to celebrate this weekend’s Pride.

Brighton Gin has put special rainbow labels and pink wax seals on 400 bottles.

A percentage of the sales will go to The Rainbow Fund, a city grant-giving fund for LGBT and HIV organisations.

The Brighton Pride bottles from Brighton Gin – voted The People’s Choice Gin in the 2017 People’s Drinks Awards – are on sale at independent shops across the city.

They include Quaff in Hove and Fiveways, Hisbe in London Road which is on the Parade route, Ten Green Bottles in Jubilee Street and Twenty One Wines in Prince Albert Street.

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 LGBTQ community and voluntary sector.

“Brighton is such a creative, free-thinking place with a long-standing heritage of invention and pleasure-seeking throughout its history.

“With Brighton Gin we wanted to create the best possible quality spirit this city deserves and we’re ecstatic that people across the UK also voted us as the country’s best gin.”

Brighton and Hove Pride takes place from tomorrow until Sunday.

The parade leaves Hove Lawns at 11am on Saturday ending at Preston Park where the the Summer of Love festival is headlined by a performance from the Pet Shop Boys.
