New Zealand Vodka Brand Salutes Pride - and the Task Force
CORAL GABLES, FL - As the world’s most awarded vodka, 42BELOW knows a little something about PRIDE. See, 42BELOW is also a proud supporter of those with PRIDE - no matter how you like it. Whether you’re lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, straight, a Kiwi, a Yankee or somewhere in between, 42BELOW Vodka stands to support those with PRIDE from the 42nd parallel to 42nd and Broadway.
In honor of National Coming Out Day on October 11, the internationally observed civil awareness and support day for "coming out," 42BELOW will donate $1.00 for every "Like" it receives on its Facebook page at facebook.com/42BelowVodka http://www.facebook.com/42BELOWVodka from October 7 to October 14 to the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force http://www.thetaskforce.org/ up to a total potential donation of $10,000.
The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force promotes civil rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people and is a leading national voice on a variety of issues critical to the full LGBT community.
42BELOW vodka asks those with PRIDE, age 21 or older, to log-on and PRIDE-up by "Liking" 42BELOW on Facebook and we’ll donate. Those feeling extra supportive can "donate" their Facebook status by updating to read "I support you - no matter how you like it."

In addition to the original 42BELOW 80 proof vodka, the brand produces three unique flavors native to its homeland, including: 42BELOW Manuka Honey, 42BELOW Passionfruit and 42BELOW Kiwifruit flavored vodkas. Their authentic, yet delicate tastes have been embraced by bartenders and cocktail aficionados alike providing the perfect base for truly innovative cocktails. 42BELOW Vodka is available at fine bars, restaurants and retail outlets at a suggested retail price of $28.99 for a 1 liter bottle, $21.99 for a 750 ml and $1.49 for 50 ml.
