Melbourne's riverside gin festival returns in spring

This November, head to South Wharf for Juniperlooza, a springtime gin festival where copious amounts of the herbaceous spirit will be enjoyed at the Boatbuilders Yard. A line-up of independent Australian and international gin producers will all showcase their gin in two forms: in a classic gin and tonic and in a signature gin cocktail concocted by the gin makers. 

Highlights from this year's line-up include locals Four Pillars and Melbourne Gin Company, West Winds Gin (WA), Archie Rose (Sydney), and international craft gin makers The Botanist Gin (Scotland) and the East London Liquor Company. 

Tickets are $45 each and visitors will be able to expect food from the Boatbuilders Yard kitchen and tasting sessions led by some of the country's best gin producers. Stick around for some navy-strength entertainment at this one-day riverside gin fest.
