Dorset gin maker launches new bottle to celebrate LGBT community (From Bournemouth Echo)

A DORSET gin maker is celebrating diversity with a limited-edition Pride bottle.

Lilliput Gin will be donating £5 from each of its special Pride celebration bottles to local and national Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) charities.

Owner of Lilliput Gin, Andy Woodfield, said: “We are proud to announce that we’re preparing a limited-edition Lilliput Dorset Gin for this year’s Pride season, in celebration of equality and diversity for everyone, but in particular in support of the LGBT community.”

He added: “Our values as a business are based on respecting and valuing difference so we felt this was a great thing to do. For every bottle sold we’ll donate £5 to a local or national LGBT charity in the run up to Pride season celebrations around the UK.”

The Pride festival takes place from Saturday, June 24, to Sunday, July 9, and the main Pride Parade takes place in London on Saturday, July 8.
