Aussie gins are among the world’s best.
For the past few years, Australia has been experiencing a gin-boom. So much so that we’ve now got over 100 distilleries across the country that are producing more than one million bottles per year. And these gins, many featuring native botanicals and unique tastes, are racking up awards around the world and beating some of the established names in the game. (Featured image: @coventgardenwe)
West End’s Covent Garden specialises in gin. They’ve got more than 350 bottles of the stuff on their shelves, but once every year they’re all about the home-grown Aussie gin brands on the market. But to figure out which gin comes out on top for 2020, they need your help.
Firstly, head over to the Hottest 100 Gins of 2020 to vote for your favourite (actually your top five). And secondly, make sure you get your ticket for their Hottest 100 Gins of 2020 countdown taking place on Sunday, 24 January.
Single passes ($39pp) are available, which gives you access to four gin/tonic degustation stations and finger food for four hours. However, if you’re as big a gin fan as the team at Covent Garden, you better go for the Hottest 100 Package ($149pp) which gives you all of the above plus four hours of unlimited drinks.
The drinks package includes wine, beer, ciders and soft drinks. More importantly, though, you’ll be able to sip on all of the 100 gins that make the Hottest 100 Gins list. You’ll just have to choose if they’re served neat or mixed with a Long-Rays mixer.

If you’re unable to attend on the day but keen to see who takes out top spot, or where your favourite ranks, the day will be broadcasted throughout Australia via live online feeds on Covent Garden’s website, Instagram & Facebook.
