There’s no denying it, we’re big fans of gin.
Update: Due to local and regional COVID-19 restrictions, Fever Tree have rescheduled the Gin & Tonic Festival for the first weekend of September, starting on Thursday 2 September.
And Brisbane is too. We’ve got The True Spirit double-decker gin bus and Brisbane Distillery’s Gin Masterclass where you can walk away with your own 500ml unique gin creation as well as West End’s Covent Garden that specialises in the spirit with 350 bottles of the stuff on their shelves.
So, when we got word that Gin and Tonic festival was hitting Brisbane up, we were obviously pretty excited at the news. Rightly so because the Fever-Tree G&T Festival is going to be mixing it up with the nation’s best gins. And then some from around the world as well with more than 17 distillers including Four Pillars Gin, Archie Rose Distilling Co and Kaki Moon Distilling taking part.
You’ll be sampling the gins at the Gin Village while at The Ultimate Gin & Tonic Bar you’ll be pairing your favourite tipple with your preferred tonic, which is obviously one of Fever Tree’s award-winning mixers. Don’t forget about the workshops and discovery sessions either because who knows when you’ll be asking yourself with what cheese do I pair this gin?
It’s all going down at Howard Smith Wharves from Thursday 29 July to Sunday 1 August with live music and a DJ sets complementing the sweet river vistas for a truly special day out. There’ll be food trucks onsite as well as pop-ups and the Howard Smith Wharves restaurants firing up the kitchens to make sure you stay in tip-top shape while sipping on your G&T.
There will be multiple gin sessions across the weekend and tickets, costing $65, will set you up with entry, six mini G&Ts, neat gin sampling, entertainment on the day and the all-important G&T workshops.
