In honor of Pride 2021 Stoli Vodka has launched a limited edition Harvey Milk collectors edition bottle.
On Harvey Milk Day (May 22) Stoli will launch a limited stock Harvey Milk Global Collector’s Edition Bottle, featuring art from Paraguayan artist Oz Montania.
Harvey Bernard Milk was an American politician and the first openly gay elected official in the history of California, where he was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
Both Harvey Milk and San Francisco Mayor George Moscone were shot and killed in San Francisco City Hall by former Supervisor Dan White on November 27, 1978.
White was angry that Moscone had refused to reappoint him to his seat on the Board of Supervisors, from which he had just resigned, and that Milk had lobbied heavily against his reappointment. These events helped bring national notice to then-Board President Dianne Feinstein, who became the first female mayor of San Francisco and eventually U.S. Senator for California.
Stoli has worked with The Harvey Milk Foundation in this capacity before, having launched the first Harvey Milk Bottle in 2018, commemorating the 40th anniversary of Milk taking office.
