The show offers a unique experience to the traditional festival, perfect for those looking to embark on an exciting journey of gin discovery – complete with tastings.
There are well-stock gin and cocktail bars, tastings, presentations from distilleries, tonic and garnish tutorials, and theatrical bartender performances. The main attraction, however, is the large variety of distilleries, artisan gin makers and tonic manufacturers in attendance, which creates what can only be described as gin heaven. Whilst gin is the primary focus of the show, makers will also be showcasing their other creations, including vodka and rum.
Each of the brands in attendance will have their own unique space from which you learn about the backstories, botanical make-up and tasting notes.
Visitors can enjoy samples from each of the brands as they showcase their wider creations. Visitors can also learn about distillation methods and what makes brands unique by attending gin masterclasses, and master the perfect serve with tonic and garnish tutorials.
This is a fun and exciting new show not to be missed with something for every gin drinker, old and new.
