Winter Gin Market
Taste and buy some of Australia's best gins this July.
June 22, 2019
Winter is always a period of adjustment — the days are shorter, the nights are icier and schedules are thrown all out of whack. Luckily, when the weather gets cooler, Melbourne always ups the ante in its events offering, meaning you have plenty of options that aren't just sitting at home trying to escape the cold.
Like Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14, for example. The Craft & Co. — Collingwood's restaurant, cafe, brewery, distillery and workshop — is holding a two-day market dedicated to gin. Across three sessions each day (11am–1pm, 1.30–3.30pm and 4–6pm), some Australia and New Zealand's best bottles of gin will be cracked open in the venue's event space. Tiny Bear Gin, Blind Tiger, Bass & Flinders, Alchemy and Karu Distillery will be a few of the gins you can try and, if you're impressed, take home a bottle of.
Your $10 ticket includes tastings, as well as a $5 voucher to use at the market. And if you want to sit down and enjoy your gin of choice, you'll be able to do that too. The eatery and bar downstairs will be operational, and you'll be able to buy some of The Craft & Co.'s gin cheese on the day as well.
