If gin's your thing, that undying love is being pushed front-and-centre at your new favourite event: the Brisbane Gin Festival. Hosted by the Australian Gin Distillers Association and headed to Lightspace for its 2023 go-around, the three-day festival will bring 30 craft gin distillers from around the country under one roof between Friday, May 12–and Sunday, May 14.

Apart from bottomless tastings, punters will also have the chance to chat directly with the makers. Stallholders will be hawking over 120 gins, including Barossa Distilling Co, Broken Heart Spirits and Prohibition Liquor Co, plus Australian Distilling Co, Hickson House and Nosferatu. And, once you've picked your favourite, you can purchase bottles for takeaway.

Tickets cost $70, with five tasting sessions to choose from: 1–4pm and 5–8pm on both Friday and Saturday, and a 12–3pm session on Sunday.

While you'll clearly find plenty of gin on offer, there'll also be a coffee bar and snacks to fill your stomach — although they'll cost extra.
