Gin Festival Is Back In London For The Bank Holiday Weekend

While some of us may be planning to head to Notting Hill Carnival over the bank holiday weekend, others might be looking for something (anything) else to do.

Gin Festival began in 2012 and is now a booming event, with their last festival being a total sell out. It was created by Jym and Marie, the power couple with a huge love of gin. They wanted things to be done properly — proper gin, proper knowledge and proper garnishes. Gin Festival is now the biggest and best gin festival around. They’ve got gins from all around the globe, distillers who really know their stuff, as well as a bit of food and entertainment to accompany the G&Ts.

[Tobacco Dock]
Hosted at Tobacco Dock from 26-28 August, the festival will be showcasing over 100 different gins. Your ticket will include a booklet crammed full of (g)information, a souvenir Gin Festival glass and a bunch of talks from crackerjack gin experts. There will be an opportunity to try an exclusive new gin, Tarquin’s “Single Estate Tea”, which is made with tea from the Tregothnan estate in Cornwall, and was created especially for Gin Festival. Even if you’re a gin newbie, they’ll be plenty of gin-savvy humans on hand to show you the ropes!

Grab your tickets now as they’re selling fast. They cost £12.50 and you can buy them here.
