One thing that says summer in Brisbane is a refreshing G&T by the river. And what better place to do that than Howard Smith Wharves? To kickstart the new year (can you believe it?), a festival dedicated to Aussie gin is popping up by the water for one big Sunday session. Back for its fifth edition, Ginuary Festival is ready to raise the bar once again for local gin lovers.
Sunday, January 22 is the date you want to save. A day to celebrate the best from homegrown gin distillers across the country, all the while enjoying unrivalled views over the Brisbane River.
A Gin Tasting Hall and Gin House will be set up during the day, where you’ll be able to taste and choose from over 100 carefully selected gins. Look out for the limited edition gins for sale, purely for your stash at home.
Regular passes are priced at $59 for early birds, which includes access to the festival, gin tastings, as well as roaming canapes from 1pm – 3pm.
Ginuary Festival does Hottest 100 a little differently too. And to keep the annual tradition afloat, they’ll be counting down the Hottest 100 Aussie Gins, as voted by gin lovers. You can vote for your favourite Aussie gin via the Covent Garden website.
