If gin were the medicine, then consider your tonic prescribed.

Australia’s first ever gin festival, Juniperlooza, is coming to Melbourne for a two-day bonanza where spirits will be running high and pouring fast. Held across two bars at Federation Wharf, Pilgrim and Riverland will host the weekend event, showcasing the best in Australia's gin.

For too long have we sliced cucumbers, slapped mint and squeezed limes into our glasses without truly knowing the perfect combination for our G&Ts. Now, eight of Australia's best gin producers will be creating and showcasing a signature gin cocktail — as well as the classic gin and tonic — over the weekend, just for you.

There will be a whole branch of flavours to try, including some from The West Winds crew, who have grown a loyal following with their bush tomato-flavoured hit, The Cutlass.

Juniperlooza's gin offerings will be complemented by gin inspired menus — think an oyster shucking stand, for a start — so really it would be rude not to drop in and enjoy some of the freshest from around the country. Consider it doctor's orders.

Juniperlooza will run across Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 29 from noon – 8pm. Grab your tickets in advance here
