A Festival Dedicated To Gin Is Headed To Sydney This March

Catch a showcase of Australia’s most notable craft gin distillers this March 8 and 9 in Sydney.

Gin lovers, rejoice. A two-day festival dedicated to all things gin is heading to Sydney this March.

The first-ever Sydney Gin Palooza event will feature 39 of Australia’s notable craft gin distillers sharing samples of their drops at Manjit’s Restaurant on King Street Wharf. One-day tickets ($70) will give you access to as many unlimited gin tastings, CAPI mixers, and canapés as you wish. For those after something more substantial, a two-hour brunch session ($55) will also be held on the Saturday.

Discover new names in gin, meet fellow gin-lovers, and pick up a bottle or three at the Pop-Up Gin Shoppe.
