Flowers aren't the only things that'll be blooming when spring comes around — at Newstead House on Saturday, September 7, botanical-based spirits will be as well. The juniper juice will be flowing as Brisbane celebrates its second Jacaranda Gin Festival, this time in a new location.

The event will also take over the historic spot for a day of gin-fuelled boozing, with more than 25 Australian and international distillers serving up their beverages for your tasting pleasure. One of the great aspects of the setting ties into the fest's name, so prepare not just to down botanical drinks, but to be surrounded by jacarandas.

Entertainment-wise, expect DJs, demonstrations and discussions, so that you can dance, learn more about gin and chat about it — or all three, of course. Expect food trucks as well, because you can dedicate a day to this delicious spirit without lining your stomach.

A number of ticketing options are available, starting at $35 for early birds and $45 afterwards, with ten tastings included. If you'd like to hang out in a dedicated lounge area and receive a welcome cocktail, nab a $88 ticket — or if you're feeling flush and really love your gin, $220 lets you sample until your heart's content.
