HOBART’S gin connoisseurs will be fizzing with excitement when Gin-uary hits town in early January 2021 at the Goods Shed.
Gin-uary Hobart organiser Nicole Fisher said the Tasmanian festival would have a number of local producers on show.
“Gin-uary was created to celebrate Tasmania’s budding gin industry, where we are now celebrated across Australia and the world for our high-quality, locally-made product,” she said.
“Gin-uary is now in its fourth year and is a crucial event for the Tasmanian spirits industry.
“Gin-uary gives Tasmanian distillers national exposure and offers local and interstate consumers the opportunity to sample a variety of well-known, as well as lesser-known, Tasmanian gins.”
Ms Fisher said festival attendees would engage with and learn from distillers, creating social and emotional connections to the product.
“Gin-uary is designed to provide an enlightening experience which showcases the passion and the spirit of the distilleries,” she said.
“Each year, our audience has grown, from 1,200 people in 2018 to 1,700 plus in 2020.
“Gin-uary 2021 will be open to more than 2000 people across three four hour sessions, held over two days.
“Attendees will have the chance to meet more than 20 local and regional distillers and taste their gins.”
Ms Fisher said there will be a delicious variety of food vendors at the event as well as the Gin-uary bar slinging cocktails and Ferever-tree will be serving up ‘G&Ts’
Gin-uary will be held at the Goods Shed at 41 Evans Street, Hobart, on 9 and 10 January 2021.
Limited early bird tickets cost $65 and standard tickets cost $75.
