Junipalooza is a festival dedicated to our favourite juniper-based spirit. It started out in London and is now in its fifth year in Melbourne. In 2020 it’s coming to Sydney for the first time.
While the line-up of producers is yet to be announced, organisers say there’ll be more than 100 gins from 30 Australian and international distillers. And part of the festival’s schtick is that either the distiller or brand owner has to be there in person.
Stop by whichever stands you like (with your keepsake glass) for gin tastings – neat or with tonic – and to meet the makers. All of the gins will also be stocked at an on-site shop you can take your favourites home.
There’ll be three sessions over the weekend: 11am to 3pm and 4pm to 8pm on Saturday, and 11am to 5pm on Sunday.
