Edinburgh Juniper Festival Edinburgh, 2016.
Scotland’s Best Gin Fest, The Juniper Festival is returning for its third consecutive year in Edinburgh, on the 10th-12th June 2016 at Summerhall. Following success in previous years, the 2016 festival is here to celebrate all things Gin, with added street food, local fashion, craft stalls and entertainment.
Run by Edinburgh based drinks events & consultancy company Solid Liquids, this event will feature an array of Gin experiences such as talks and tastings, with more performances than ever before. There will be over thirty brands taking part, with stalls manned by experts with samples of over sixty varieties of Gin, complimented by ranges of Tonic waters and other mixers to try before you buy. As well as this, there will be a bottle shop run by Drinkmonger, giving everyone the opportunity to take their favourites home with them. Promising to be a fun-filled weekend whilst also promoting a healthy and informed attitude toward responsible drinking.
“We’re looking to keep up the momentum of Gin’s popularity, with so many fantastic products on the market, more than ever people are interested what they are drinking; the process, the ingredients and the craftsmanship involved in creating their favourite spirit” – Martin Duffy, director of Solid Liquids
The event will take place at Edinburgh’s Summerhall, the home of Pickering’s Gin (who will be opening their doors all weekend for tours of a working distillery) and many other local businesses. The weekend will surround World Gin Day on the 11th June, and sessions will take place as follows:
