Known as THE connoisseurs Gin Festival, the much-loved show is set to return to Tobacco Dock, London, with 60 distillers traveling especially to take part in person.
Junipalooza’s unique policy of having either the Master Distiller or the Owner of the Gin company present and pouring samples in person – no matter where their distillery is based - guarantees gin fans can sample gins from all over the world while also getting exclusive access to the people behind the spirit.
“Junipalooza is as much about the spirit of the maker as the Spirit they make. You don’t just get told what’s in a gin and which botanicals or what flavours to expect – you also get to know the people behind it; their personality, their methods, their ideas and enthusiasm as well as what they are up to next…”
Junipalooza is back at Tobacco Dock on World Gin Day 2018, with more gins than ever before.
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 once through the door, you’ll be handed a tasting glass and off you go to taste you way through the next four hours.
Your ticket entitles you to sample whichever gins you’d like to try (responsibly) from any of the stands - at no further cost. All samples are made available either neat or with tonic. You also have access to a Newcomers Zone and area filled with the very latest craft gins from around the world (you can sample away at no further cost in there too).
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 an armful.
2018 will be the 5th year, Junipalooza is a huge event and undoubtedly one of the best way to spend World Gin Day. With the early Bird and second release tickets all sold out - the festival tickets are £35 per person.
