Australia's undying love of gin is set to be front-and-centre next month when the inaugural Sydney Gin Palooza comes to King Street Wharf. Hosted by the Australian Gin Distillers Association, the mini festival will bring 40 craft gin distillers from around the country under one roof on Friday, March 8 and Saturday, March 9.

Apart from bottomless tastings, punters will also have the chance to chat directly with the makers. There will be 40 stallholders hawking over 200 gins, including Sydney locals Archie Rose and Manly Spirits Co., Tasmania's Lark Distillery, Yarra Valley's Four Pillars and Margaret River's The West Winds Gin.

Representing NSW, there will be Karu Distillers, which will demonstrate the best way to mix gin and iced tea; Hemp Gin, which is one of the first Australian distilleries to create hemp seed-infused gin; and Distillery Botanica, which will share its internationally award-winning drops. Once you've picked your favourite, head to the gin shop, where you can purchase bottles for takeaway.

Tickets will cost $70, with five tasting sessions to choose from across the two days. Each entry ticket includes unlimited gin tastings, mixers, and canapés. If you're keen to get in early on Saturday, a shorter two-hour brunch session will run from 11am at a discounted $55 per ticket. Apart from all of the above, the ticket will also include a coffee, croissant and a G&T to boot.
