Flowers aren't the only things blooming now that spring has sprung — on King Street on Saturday, October 20, botanical-based spirits will be as well. The juniper juice will be flowing as Brisbane's growing foodie hangout celebrates its first Jacaranda Gin Festival. Yes, Welcome to Bowen Hills had its own gin fest a few months back, but this is a bigger, precinct-wide affair.

Of course, WtBH features prominently. It does have its own specialty gin bar, Swill, after all. The event will also take over half of King Street, with more than 20 Australian and international distillers serving up their beverages for your tasting pleasure. 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.

A number of ticketing options are available, starting at $55 for a four-hour stint between either 12–4pm or 5–10pm, with an arrival gin cocktail and ten tastings included. If you'd like to hang out in a dedicated lounge area and have an extra cocktail, nab a $88 ticket — or if you're feeling flush, really love your gin and want to make a day of it, $220 lets you stay from open until close and sample until your heart's content.
