*The pioneering Gin & Tonic Festival returns to Cape Town on the 25th February 2018 at the celebrated Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock*
Taste, swirl and revel in the most exciting, fastest growing spirit category in the world! The Gin & Tonic Festival returns to Cape Town showcasing over 30 local and international gin distilleries at a venue born to be the spiritual home of the G&T in the Mother City; The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock.
We’re elated to announce the return of the exciting new partnership between the award winning Neighbourgoods Market and the Gin & Tonic Festival team, brought to fruition through collaboration to host the 6th instalment of South Africa’s original Gin & Tonic Festival.
With the wealth of knowledge and festival experience this collaboration brings, expect nothing but the best on Sunday the 25th of February 2018.
Some of the country’s best gin producers will be available to sample and taste, to illustrate what makes their tipple so simply irresistible. Previous exhibitors and festival regulars included stalwarts such as Bloedlemoen, Ginifer, Hope on Hopkins, Inverroche, New Harbour and Wilderer. What’s even more exciting is the host of fresh new players in the local market that will fight it out for a spot to showcase their craft to the Cape Town faithful. Previous international regulars included revered brands like The Botanist, Sipsmith, Beefeater, Hendricks, Tanqueray and Elephant Gin, making it the benchmark Gin & Tonic Festival in South Africa. The full complement of 2018’s participating Gin and Tonic brands will be revealed in early February.
Gin lovers can look forward to having their taste buds tantalised by artisanal food offerings from the Old Biscuit Mill regulars as well as a host of delicious new food vendors. A selection of the city’s finest food trucks and gourmet street food chefs will serve up gastronomic goodness to festivalgoers. In addition, a summer-inspired designer’s market will feature the brightest in locally made fashion, lifestyle and accessory goods. If that's not enough to get your toes tingling, a selection of local artists will soothe and entertain the crowds at our dedicated music stages, setting the mood for a truly memorable experience. Expect a curated bill of live and electronic music.
A ticket gives you access to the best the local and international gin market has to offer, all under one, well-organised roof. Tickets are limited, so make sure to gather your friends for what’s set to be the best Gin & Tonic Festival the Mother City, and the country, has ever seen.
