Auckland Gin Festival On This February

The Auckland Gin festival is back on this 3-5 February at The Cloud on Queens Wharf.

Hosted by the Australian Gin Distillers Association, this year's gin festival will feature 40 Kiwi and Aussie craft gin distilleries, who will be serving a range of 300 gins to attendees.

The Fever-Tree Taste Theatre, also free to ticket-holders, will be hosting informative gin-tasting sessions and demonstrations - managed by Charles Casben, owner and manager of Moya's Juniper Lounge in Redfern, Sydney.

Other companies like Fever-Tree, Dirty International, Local Legend Eats, Karmic Kitchen and Schibello Coffee will also be there, providing attendees with a variety of food and drink.

The Australian Gin Distillers Association also owns and manages the Australian Gin Awards, whereby New Zealand and Australian craft distillers can submit their products for professional judging.
