This is not a drill: The Great British Gin Festival is coming to Bristol

Let the fun be-GIN

The Great British Gin Festival is returning to Bristol in April 2019 and it's going to be bigger and better than ever.

The festival features over 100 different international gins, from household names to small batch gins, and promises to deliver a wide range of gin flavours you didn't even realise you needed in your life.

Over 100 brands of gin — yes PLEASE

For those who consider themselves connoisseurs there are talks about the history of gin, demonstrations of gin production and mixologist shows with more dry ice than SWX on a Saturday night. For everyone else, there will be drinking games and a live band.
