Absolut celebrates LGBTQ+ community with Rainbow Edition

ABSOLUT Vodka has launched its Rainbow edition, a popular LGBTQ+ Pride limited-edition vodka bottle, for the first time in the Philippines. The bottle, first introduced internationally in 2008, features the vibrant rainbow design of the LGBTQ+ flag depicted in brush strokes, evoking the freedom and diversity of the community, as well as the brand’s artistic heritage. The bottle also features a “Taking Pride In Diversity” statement at the back. Absolut Vodka has been a staunch supporter of the LGBTQ+ community since the early 1980s. Absolut was also the first spirits brand to have the Pride flag design on its bottle in 2008, through a partnership with the flag’s designer, Gilbert Baker. The Absolut Vodka limited-edition Rainbow bottle is available exclusively at all S&R stores for a suggested retail price of P599 for its 700 ml bottle and P779 for its 1L format starting this November.
