January 17, 2024
If gin's your thing, that undying love is being pushed front-and-centre at the Brisbane Gin Festival. Headed to Lightspace for its 2024 event, the three-day festival will bring 30 craft gin distillers from around the country under one roof between Friday, July 26–Sunday, July 28.
Apart from bottomless tastings, punters will also have the chance to chat directly with the makers. Stallholders will be hawking over 120 gins, including Burly Gin, 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 start at $73.72, with five sessions to choose from: 1–4pm and 5–8pm on the Friday; 10am–1pm, 2–5pm and 6–9pm on the Saturday; and a 12–3pm session on Sunday. Your entry includes a tasting cup and a tote bag — plus all those samples.
Heaps Good Gin is also hosting a masterclass on the Sunday. You'll pay $110 to attend from 11am–12pm, and will get access to the festival as well.
