Gin is a rapidly growing sector in the spirits market & the successes of the Juniper Gin Festival has mirrored this! This was my third time visiting Juniper & as a gin enthusiast, I’ll let you know why this gin festival is the #bestginfest for me!
Juniper Gin Festival, unlike others, lets you meet some of the reps/makers/owners of each brand of gin so you get information direct from the source & these guys know how to answer any question you might have!
With each stall at Juniper, you can try each type of gin neat & with a selected tonic or mixer, this is a lot of gin so keep a pen handy so you remember which ones (if not all) are your favourites!
Juniper has a large variety of vendors from well known gin producers & new/upcoming gin makers you might not have heard of. My favourite new supplier was Manchester Gin!
Because you’re getting to meet the people directly involved with the gin making/producing/selling, you’re also learning a whole lot about the production of gin. You also hear a lot of interesting stories about how the companies start up & everyone is happy to tell their story!
I also found a gin company originating from my Dad’s home town of Elgin, it’s a small world when it comes to gin eh?
Oh & it isn’t a gin festival without running into the lovely Mumu Kitsch!
When it comes to learning about different gins & getting a variety of different vendors that are passionate & talk to us drunken gin enthusiasts, for me, Juniper Gin Festivals wins hands down!
Watch here for a sneak peak! Thanks for reading!
