Junipalooza, now in its ninth year, is a MEET THE MAKER festival happening on the 11th & 12th June.
Either the distiller or brand owner will be there in person and you will be able to meet the people that put everything they have into the gins they make.
The format is simple. Each guest is given their very own keepsake tasting glass to take around the show.
There will be over 50 different distillers taking part, with well over three hundred different gins between them and you’ll be able to stop by whichever ones take your fancy and try their gins both neat and with tonic. That's included in the ticket price, no pay as you go nonsense ,and provides guests with huge value for money given the vast selection on offer.
Spirits Kiosk are also onsite, offering £5 off orders (simple T&C's apply) meaning that part of your ticket is redeemable against purchase should you try something you love and want to take a bottle home.
Some of the BIGGEST NAMES IN GIN are there, in person. Four Pillars Gin, Never Never Distillery, Manly Spirits, Hernö Gin, Salcombe Distillery, Mermaid, Tarquin's, Adnam's, Hayman's, Hapusa and so many more. They are stood shoulder to shoulder next to some of the smallest craft makers in the country too - names Hills and Harbour, Papillon, Camino, Temby Gin, Thunderflower, Brighton, Shivering Mountain and handfuls literally making their debut in the Newcomers Room on that weekend.
There are more than 50 in total and from all over the world, from those already mentioned to 135 East Gin from Japan, Jaisalmer Gin from India, Newfoundland Gin from Canada, Seppeltsfield Road Distillers from Australia, Mallorca Distillery from Palma, Broken Bones from Slovenia - it goes on and on!
Each are bringing their ranges, some are launching new products - it's a gin lovers paradise, a bit mad given how much gin there is and all the smiley happy people nerding out on distilling, botanicals and raising a toast to juniper. A whole lot of fun and no better way to spend WORLD GIN DAY!
