Fever-Tree Gin & Tonic Festival
Time Out says
This festival dedicated to all things G&T
In the world of botanical booze, there isn’t a more beloved duo than the humble G&T. She’s fresh, sometimes fruity, bubbly and and always full of subtle flavour. If you know this beverage well from parties gone by, or would like to get to know it better, head to Centennial Park this March for four full days of fresh tipples.
The festival, hosted by tonic brand Fever-Tree (they do those cute bottles of the quinine-based mixer with aromatic additions) runs from March 25 to 28. A gin village of more than 100 distilled juniper berry concoctions and tonics will set up in a new location in First Fleet Park, The Rocks. Swing by for live music, garden games, cocktail demos and gin and cheese matching (interesting). A contingent of food trucks and picnic hampers should sort out afternoon snacks and dinner.
Plus, you'll be privy to an exclusive or two – Four Pillars Gin will launch their latest (yet to be announced) limited-release gin and Archie Rose Distilling Co. will be offering a gin crafted exclusively for the fest.
Festivities will kick off at 5pm on Thursday and Friday and roll through the evening, and then start again at 11.30am on Saturday and noon on Sunday.
Tickets include six mini-G&Ts to try, as well as entry to free talks and workshops over one three-hour session – nab yours here.
