Riverland owners Dave Sharry and Richie Ludbrook began Melbourne's first gin festival, Juniperlooza, in 2015. It returns for the third time in November, this time taking over The Boatbuilders Yard on South Wharf.

The event will feature a range of Australian and international gins, with gin cocktails from more than 18 producers. Each producer will offer up two drinks: a classic gin and tonic and a signature cocktail.

There will also be wines, beers and other spirits available, as well as food, DJs and other performances.

A series of intimate Talk and Taste sessions can be booked at no extra cost after buying a ticket to the festival.

Juniperlooza will run from 12pm to 8pm on November 18, and tickets include a gin-and-tonic token. Early-bird tickets are available during August for $35. Regular tickets, available from September 1 onwards, are $45. Tickets can be purchased here.
