Australia’s first gin festival, Juniperlooza is back and bigger than ever

Perfectly timed for summer, Australia’s original sell-out gin festival Juniperlooza will be back on Saturday February 9 at The Boatbuilders Yard, South Wharf. Party with your friends and try some of the best gins around for this one day event, from 12pm-8pm.

Taking over even more of Polly Woodside this year, Juniperlooza 2019 will be the biggest party yet with 21 boutique Australian and international gin producers on show. Festival goers can once again rub shoulders with the masterminds behind each gin, try their signature cocktails and of course plenty of G&Ts. Also enjoy an up close and personal Talk & Taste session if that’s your jam.

The party will be fuelled by Cedar Fox, Ink Gin, Archie Rose, Patient Wolf, 4 Pillars, Chase Distillery, with fifteen more producers to be announced. It wouldn’t be a gin party without tonic and Strangelove will have it well and truly covered.

“Gin & Tonic. Sunshine. Umbrellas. Delicious food. Open-toe footwear. Seriously, what’s not to love?”, said James Bruce from Strangelove.

“The producers are super-passionate about their craft (and they are usually pretty weird). We like being around that, it’s inspiring. Oh and also – there is lots of gin there. So yeah, passion and gin basically…but mainly gin”.

Extra perks this year include a sleek reusable stainless-steel straw that’ll get you through the entire day and many more gin sessions to come, along with the ability to pre-book Talk & Taste sessions before the festival kicks off.

As expected delicious bites from The Boatbuilders Yard kitchen will be available, and there’ll be plenty of entertainment, DJs and quirky performing artists.
