Tapped In G&T Festival
A two-day gin festival celebrating Patient Wolf's new eco-friendly soda and tonic fountain.
That gin obsession of yours is about to be put to even better use, with Melbourne set to score a new boozy celebration dedicated to your favourite tipple. The inaugural Tapped In G&T Festival descends on Patient Wolf Distilling Co's Southbank HQ across Saturday, April 17 and Sunday, April 18, serving up a special program of gin-centric libations, tunes, food and general good times.
The event is happening to celebrate the launch of Victoria's first Long Rays tonic and soda fountain — an innovative, sustainability-focused tap system which has landed at Patient Wolf. Decked out in rose gold, it's set to save an estimated 6200 glass bottles from waste each year.
Festival attendees will be among the first locals to see (and taste) the system in action, as they sample gin spritz creations featuring flavours like yuzu and wattle pollen, and pear with rhubarb and lemon verbena. There'll be plenty of classics from the Long Rays and Patient Wolf portfolios also featured on the day's drinks menu, and guests are invited to unleash their creativity at the DIY garnish station.
Plus, in-between sipping those gins and doing your bit for the environment, you'll be able to tuck into tasty food truck eats — and unwind to sounds from the resident DJ.
