It’s Back: Gin Palooza Returns To Sydney In 2020

Drink, Sydney / 29 July 2020

Gin lovers, mark your calendar. Gin Palooza is back and better than ever, coming to Sydney for one weekend only.

The gin and tonic. It’s a staple at every bar, and a drink enjoyed by gin connoisseurs around the world. Each bottle demands a different treatment. Some gins will come alive with just a splash of premium tonic and a twist of citrus, while others are best served with a few additional botanical touches. For those looking to try the best of the bunch, this next gin-focused festival will be right up your alley.

After a series of successful events,  the Australian Gin Distillers Association is hosting another event for lovers of the aromatic spirit – the Sydney Gin Palooza.

Held over one jam-packed weekend in December 2020, the Christmas Gin Palooza sees 33 of Australia’s top gin distillers under the one roof, popping up at well-known International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC). Think The Farmers WifeMartin Distillation Company, Newy DistilleryDistillery BotanicaProhibition Liquor CoBarossa DistillingManly SpiritsSettlers SpiritsAmbleside Distillers and WA’s Giniversity.

For just $60pp, punters will be able to enjoy entry to the festival. This year, things will run a little differently with 3x three-hour sessions across 2 days to give gin connoisseurs ample time to create the G&Ts of their dreams using new release Artisan Tonics expertly mixed with world-class gins.

Want to learn something new? Make sure to swing by leading bartender Mikey Enright’s Cocktail Masterclass (September 5th) for a mind-blowing gin history lesson followed by an engaging demo of classic bartending techniques. Plus, Cape Byron Distillery’s Co-Founder Eddie Brooke will host Brookies Gin Masterclass (September 5th), offering an immersive workshop on how various forest botanicals contribute to the flavour profile of craft gins, including a hands-on cocktail making tutorial.

Plus, punters will also be treated to FREE coffee throughout the weekend (courtesy of Schibello Coffee) as well as a tantalising array of gourmet dishes from cod croquettes to beef sliders, arancini balls, butter chicken and gin cured Atlantic salmon.
