Perth is big on its food and wine festivals. The W.A. capital annually enjoys a Beerfest, CrabFest, Chili Festival, Good Food & Wine Show, Asian Foods Week, heck there’s even a Cider and Pork Festival.
So it comes as quite a surprise that the city hasn’t hosted a celebration for all things gin and tonic.
Well, make room on your foodie calendar for the Gin & Tonica Festival has just been announced.
Following on from the sell-out success of the Espresso Martini Festival last year in December, Market Grounds are getting set to host Perth’s first-ever Gin & Tonica Festival, to run for one day only.
There’ll be quality gins on offer from local and international distilleries such as Four Pillars, Tanqueray, Bombay, Gordon’s, Hendrick’s, Adelaide Hills and more, while much of the tonic will be provided courtesy of Fever Tree Tonic.
But you don’t have to stick to tonic with your gin. Feel free to mix the good stuff in with your preferred soda or cool bevvy.
First release tickets start at $25
There’ll be masterclasses in gin mixing, live entertainment, and of course tasting sessions taste gin and tonic infused bites.
Tickets start at $25 to $55 and include entry plus a drink card to redeem two gin tonicas of your choice.
Bottoms up, then.
The Gin Tonica Festival is on Sunday, March 29th at Market Grounds, 10 Telethon Avenue, Perth.
