Fever-Tree Gin & Tonic Festival 2022
A huge gin and tonic festival is coming to Howard Smith Wharves.
March 16, 2022
This year, Brisbanites have another excuse for enjoying a G&T in a garden — Australia's gin and tonic festival is coming to town. After being postponed from 2021, the Fever-Tree Gin & Tonic Festival is descending upon the Howard Smith Wharves precinct. Mark Thursday, April 28–Sunday, May 1. in your diary, because that's when you can sip your way around this huge tasting event dedicated to the classic tipple.
Here, you'll have the chance to sample 20 different gins — from Melbourne's world-renowned Four Pillars to Queensland's Wolf Lane — matched with top tonics from Fever-Tree's range of mixers. Archie Rose, Never Never, Sunshine & Sons and Kalki Moon will all be taking part, too, because the more gin the merrier here.
Explore the pop-up Gin Village, Tonic Discovery Bar and Ultimate Gin & Tonic Bar, then grab a snack from one of the restaurant pop-ups, including an oyster and prawn bar — you will be at HSW, after all. Rounding out the fun will be live entertainment, as well as a series of complimentary drink demonstrations and expert-led workshops.
Seven sessions are being held: 5–9pm on Thursday and Friday evening; 11.30am–2.30pm and 3.30–6.30pm on both Saturday and Sunday; and 7.30–10.30pm just on Saturday night.
Tickets to the Fever-Tree Gin & Tonic Festival clock in at $65 (or $55 if you get in quick), which'll score you entry and six mini gin and tonics.
