TORONTO, June 20, 2017 /CNW/ - Absolut Vodka is proud to announce that its acclaimed limited edition Absolut Mix bottle, which was designed in celebration of diversity and acceptance, will be returning to Canada this summer in honour of Pride month. Inspired by the six colours of the Pride flag, the bottle's colourful label features overlapping semi-transparent triangles that symbolize the connection that is created when diverse individuals mix together.
"Absolut believes in creating unique experiences that support self-expression through art and creativity," says Vanessa Clarke, Senior Brand Manager, Corby Spirit and Wine. "Absolut Mix represents the idea of bringing different minds together, creating a world where people are free to be true to themselves without judgement or prejudice."
Since 1981, Absolut has been proud to stand with the LGBTQ community by supporting their message of love and acceptance. In collaboration with local artists Diana Lynne VanderMeulen and Sarah Cannon, the dazzled Absolut Unicorns are returning to Toronto's 37th annual Pride Festival weekend, celebrating the history, courage and diversity of the community. Ride with Pride at the Buddies in Bad Times Theatre (12 Alexander St.) from June 23-25th, and tag #AbsolutUnicorns to share.
