Gintonica Ginormous Gin Tasting
Join thousands of Aussies attempting to crack the record for the world's largest gin tasting at multiple venues.
By now, it's probably been a good, long while since you last enjoyed an IRL booze tasting. And we can't think of a better way to make up for those lost months than having a crack at breaking the Guinness World Record title for the world's largest gin tasting. Yes, that's an actual thing that's happening this Sunday, November 22, at more than 60 distilleries and gin bars across the country.
Helmed by online gin hub and retail store Gintonica, the record attempt will aim to see thousands of Aussies simultaneously enjoying an afternoon of tastings and other gin-related revelry. The world record is currently held by the Brits, who managed to wrangle a crowd of 796 gin-lovers back in 2016.
If you fancy being a part of Australia's attempt this weekend, you'll find a handful of Melbourne venues getting their gin on, including Brogan's Way Distillery in Richmond, the CBD's Little Lon Distilling Co, and Patient Wolf's new South Melbourne HQ.
Pick a favourite, nab a $75 ticket and head along for the ride. Not only will you experience an expert-led tasting of three craft gins with a selection of StrangeLove tonics, but you'll score a commemorative Spanish style 'Copa de Balon' gin glass, 30 percent off your next Gintonica order, and a host of other offers and discounts from your favourite gin brands. There'll be various other happenings unfolding at each venue, and you'll receive an official certificate of participation to prove your boss-level gin aficionado status, of course.
Gintonic Ginormous Gin Tasting runs from 3–5pm.
