Time Out says

Is there anything better for Christmas than gin? How about a whole market devoted to it?

Gin-gle bells, gin-gle bells, gin-gle all the way...

Is there anyone on your Christmas list who would not be happier getting a bottle of Australian-made craft gin than yet another ugly pair of socks? If there is, you should probably stop being friends with that person, they sound like a bad influence. 

For everyone else, there's the Christmas Gin Market, which is back for 2019 after a stellar first year. Some of Australia's best craft producers, including Patient Wolf Gin, the Craft and Co, Bass and Flinders Distillery, Blind Tiger Gin, Tiny Bear Distillery and more will be on hand over the weekend so you can pick up a bottle (or two).  

Tickets are only $15, and they include free tastings plus a $5 market voucher to be used at any of the stalls. Ticket sessions are timed, throughout the weekend so as to manage the crowds. As you would expect, this is likely to be an extremely popular event, so session times are strictly limited.
