Calling all gin lovers! Junipalooza, THE international gin event is back and better than ever at Tobacco Dock for World Gin Day. What’s Junipalooza you ask? Let’s break it down, Juni: an abbreviation of Gin’s signature botanical, juniper, and Palooza: a party, celebration or festival. It is the only gin show where gin fans can meet makers and sample unique gins from all over the world is back for 2017, and it’s better than ever before.

Junipalooza returns to London’s Tobacco Dock on the 10th & 11th June, along with 50 distillers flying in from 14 countries including Australia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and beyond. Now in its fourth year, the fun and inclusive event shines a light on the huge variety of gins in the category, many of which are debuted in the UK at the show.

Unlike other gin events, Junipalooza promises gin stands hosted by the distillers themselves, category-wide masterclasses, music, food, a cocktail bar hosted by the team at Beefeater Gin and of course, hundreds of tasty gins to sample in what promises to be a fun-fuelled experience for 3,000 gin-thirsty fans.

Junipalooza is proud to coincide with World Gin Day on Saturday 10th. With a ticket that includes a FREE sample of gin, there is no better way to celebrate World Gin Day than with distillers from all over the world. New to the show this year is the dedicated masterclass area, a space where ticket holders can sample over 100 gins during one of three sessions held over the weekend.

Sessions run from 11:00-15:00 and 16:00-20:00 on Saturday, and 11:00-16:00 on Sunday. The Gin Kiosk shop will also stock all the exhibiting gins in one convenient spot for ticket holders to purchase. Sessions cost £30 and can be purchased online at junipalooza.com or Eventbrite.

Commenting on the festival, Gin Foundry’s Editor Olivier Ward says: “Junipalooza is a rare opportunity to meet the actual gin-makers, who fly in for the occasion from all over the world just to be there to share their passion. Having them all there in person always creates a very inclusive and fun atmosphere – it’s a true celebration and one that’s a must-do for any gin fan.”

Fuelling the festive season with a juniper laced journey of discovery, hidden behind each door of the Ginvent calendar is a different 30ml dram of gin to be enjoyed.

Representative of Gin Foundry’s core mission to celebrate gin and help drinkers find their perfect tipple, the team works hard to ensure that Ginvent provides a different experience each year. New additions for 2016 include gins of every description, from an award-winning Finnish gin through to seemingly magical colour-changing gins, sloe gins, Navy Strength, Old Tom, Barrel Aged, fruit infused and more – allowing people to bring the wonders of gin home this Christmas.

Gin Foundry spent months of the year researching and sourcing the perfect gins for Ginvent, to make sure it provided a representative snapshot of the category’s depth, diversity and global reach – for 2016 quirkier offerings even include a gin which changes colour, mysteriously turning from blue to pink once mixed with tonic!

It really is the perfect way to explore the gin category and discover a new gin of choice – whether a gift for the gin enthusiast, or a personal incentive to get through you through the hectic holiday season, the calendar showcases all types of producers, from the artisanal and craft through to the more familiar, larger names.
