Wonderful World Gin Day events across the UK!

World Gin Day is a global celebration of all things gin and the best day of the year for all us gin lovers! If you still haven’t got plans for Saturday 8th June, here are a few amazing gin events happening around the UK this weekend…



Known as THE connoisseurs Gin Festival, the much-loved show is set to return to Tobacco Dock, London, with 60 distillers traveling especially to take part in person.

Junipalooza’s unique policy of having either the Master Distiller or the Owner of the Gin company present and pouring samples in person – no matter where their distillery is based – guarantees gin fans can sample gins from all over the world while also getting exclusive access to the people behind the spirit.

If you haven’t managed to get a ticket, they have just released a few final ones online here!


The Gin To My Tonic Festival 

The Gin To My Tonic Festival brings together over 100 different gins from across the UK and beyond. Each gin stocked behind the bars has been selected based on outstanding craftsmanship, delightful flavour and the most enjoyable drinking experiences.

The Gin To My Tonic Festival will once again take place at Oxford Town Hall. Tickets on sale here!
