Australia's undying love of gin is set to be front-and-centre next month when the Sydney Gin Palooza returns. Hosted by the Australian Gin Distillers Association and headed to Paddington Town Hall for its next event, the four-day festival will bring 39 craft gin distillers from around the country under one roof between Thursday, November 21 and Sunday, November 24.

Apart from bottomless tastings, punters will also have the chance to chat directly with the makers. Stallholders will be hawking over 200 gins, including Four Pillars Gin, Broken Heart spirits and The National Gin Company, plus Never Never, Ambleside, Ironbark Distillery and Brisbane Distillery. Once you've picked your favourite, head to the gin shop, where you can purchase bottles for takeaway.

Tickets cost $70, with five tasting sessions to choose from: 5.30–8pm on Friday, 1–3.30pm and 5–7.30pm on Saturday, and 12.30–3pm and 4–6.30pm on Sunday. There's no tastings on Thursday, because that's when the Gin Awards Presentation Dinner will be held — rewarding the best juniper booze there is.

Sydney Gin Palooza will also feature a gourmet tapas bar, as well as plenty of espresso martinis. Plus, if you fancy filling your head with knowledge while you're sipping, Bill Lark will chat about gin's history — and what makes a great tipple — over tastings and canapes, while Karu Distillers are celebrating all things juniper, then throwing a high G&Tea party.
