It's a great time to be a gin lover in Brisbane. Old gin bars, new gin bars, gin parties — everywhere you look, someone is sipping on juniper spirits (and telling you to as well). And, someone is taking the idea even further, dedicating an entire day to that glistening clear liquid we all know and love.
Say cheers to Brisbane's first annual gin festival, Gin Sanity, which might just describe your obsessive love of the tipple in question. It'll take over Bakery Lane from 2pm on February 17, not only with a range of Australian and international beverages, but with each brand — Sipsmith Distillery, Whitley Neill, Archie Rose, The Botanist and the like — whipping up their own G&T and a signature cocktail.
Live music, food and masterclasses are also slated, with the full lineup to be revealed closer to the event. Entry costs $15, which includes a drink on arrival. It'll have gin in it, obviously.
