If you thought gin season was over, think again. Saturday, June 9 is World Gin Day and you won't find a better excuse to raise a glass to this botanically-driven spirit. Especially since Wilson & Market is marking the occasion with a World Gin Day pop-up tasting festival, putting its 50-strong collection of gins from around the world to very good use.
You'll have the chance to sample an array of top-quality drops, from homegrown heroes like Adelaide Hills Distillery and Brunswick's Patient Wolf, to international treats like London's Fords Gin and Sweden's first dedicated gin distillery, Hernö.
Your $45 ticket includes five tastings, matched to a selection of canapes. Guests will also have the chance to sample a range of specialty cocktails and G&T varieties, like the zesty combination of Patient Wolf, cumquat, cucumber and sage.
The festivities are set to continue well into the night, with everything from the bar's hefty gin collection offered at two-for-one prices from 6pm until 10pm.
