The annual Gin festival is a very much one of a kind; not only are all of the makers behind each gin there to talk you through their products in person, but every single gin is free to sample and comes with the option to drink neat or with tonic.
Over 40 gin brands will be in attendance, with over 100 gins on offer between them. Once through the door, you’ll be handed a tasting glass and off you go to taste your way through the next four hours. Your ticket entitles you to as many samples as you’d like to try, as well as access to a range of talks and masterclasses from industry experts, a great cocktail bar and a room full of gin geeks having the best time since… well, last year’s stellar event.
You’ll also have the opportunity to buy directly from the makers; to hear their stories and become a part of them. Gin Kiosk also has a shop on site if you don’t want to carry the gins around all day you can take your tasting notes to them at the end of the session and pick up and armful.
This year, the team have added a Friday night speed tasting event to the schedule (more on this soon). Distillers (and their gins, of course), will join you and your friends at your table to share stories and samples, before moving onto the next table (while yet another gin maker joins you at yours).
Now in its fourth year, Junipalooza is a huge event and undoubtedly the best way to spend World Gin Day.
