Explore 70 different gins at Pilgrim Bar through to April as Melbourne's riverside gin festival returns
Head down to the Yarra for Juniperlooza: a summer gin festival celebrating the herbaceous spirit. After a stint down river at the Boatbuilders Yard, Juniperlooza is back where it started at Pilgrim, just below Fed Square.
This year the festival will be an all-summer affair, with Juniperlooza running for the duration of the season (Thursday to Sunday). There will be 70 gin labels from 30 different producers available to taste, with Pilgrim running interactive talk and taste sessions for gin enthusiasts.
Enjoy a Patient Wolf Summer Thyme gin served with StrangeLove Coastal tonic and lemon and fresh thyme. Or indulge in an Ink Gin Fizz shaken with lemon and Davidson Plum.
Get the party started with the $59pp Gin & Tapas experience: on Fridays and Saturdays, enjoy two hours of free-flowing Gin and Tonics paired with Australian tapas (made with ingredients grown in Australia only). The offer also includes house beer and wine if you want a break from gin. Last session is at 6pm daily.
Pilgrim has a unique list of all-Australian wine, beer and spirits and a food menu of seasonal share plates. It’s the ideal place to enjoy summer’s favourite spirit and catch up with friends.
