Gin, let’s face it, has taken the Mother City (and actually the entire planet) by storm. And, being summer, there’s hardly a better way to cool down than with a G&T. Now in its third year, this fabulously refreshing festival affords Capetonians the chance to sample loads of locally made – and internationally popular – gins at The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock.
Small-batch producers such as Ginifer, Inverroche, New Harbour, Hope on Hopkins, Bloedlemoen Gin, Six Dogs Gin, and more, will be showcasing their artisanal wares. And, of course, a selection of your favourite international brands will be back, as well as some exciting newbies, and two USA first-timers – all of which are available for sampling.
Live Beats, Food Trucks & More
While sipping on a refreshing G&T, browse the various artisanal food stalls and some of the hottest food trucks in the land for a tasty snack to accompany your cocktail(s). A selection of top-notch local artists will provide the soundtrack – of live and electronic beats – from three music stages, creating a fully festive and truly memorable vibe.
There’ll also be a summer-inspired designer’s market featuring cool locally made fashion, decor and accessories.
Your R150 ticket includes an extensive 40-page gin-festival booklet featuring all participating distillers, and a branded crystal-cut Gin & Tonic Festival glass, all of which you’ll receive on arrival. Tasters on the day are priced between R10 and R20.
Did you know? The inexplicably delicious G&T combination was invented in the 19th century by British soldiers in India looking for a more palatable way to ingest quinine (which is found in tonic water and possesses healing and antimalarial properties).
