Get In on the Gin
"Relish every gin and tonic drunk"
Hitting cities and towns all across the UK, Gin Festival has brought tens of thousands of gin enthusiasts together to discover and celebrate craft gin.
With a fantastic range of unusual gins and a real dedication to the perfect serve, nobody does a gin and tonic like Gin Festival.
Gin Festival was established in 2013 by Jym and Marie Harris. They wanted to go out, enjoy fantastic entertainment and great food whilst drinking the best gins and learning more about all things juniper.
They wanted this all under one roof – but it didn’t exist. So they created Gin Festival. Three years later and Gin Festival has grown from a single event to a phenomenon. Delighting attendees nationwide with four fabulous gin bars, showcasing the very best in British and international gins as well as the finest gin liqueurs. To create the perfect serve, each gin has a carefully matched garnish alongside a specifically paired Fever-Tree tonic or mixer.
Gin Festival isn’t just about the gin and tonics, though – there’s a regular cocktail bar serving up fantastic gin-based libations, as well as additional seasonal treats. You can chat to the distillers and brands who love to make gin, drink gin and share a sample or two. If they get you hooked, attend one of the amazing masterclasses where you can learn all about gin – how it’s made, its history and beyond. Alternatively, just relax. Soak up the atmosphere, relish every gin and tonic drunk, try delicious street food and enjoy the entertainment.
Every fabulous gin, jenever and gin liqueur that can be tried on the bars, as well as irresistible gin themed gifts, are sold at the on-site off-licence and online. Also, the festival hosts Gin Explorer at its events – a monthly subscription service bringing four 50ml measures of unusual gins, a treasure trove of information and surprise treats, direct to your door. Gin Explorer is the perfect treat for anybody who can’t bear to miss out on the festivals.
