An incredible gin festival is coming to Melbourne next month. At Junipalooza, you’ll discover over 50 different craft distillers from both around Australia and overseas. With your very own tasting glass, you’ll explore over one hundred types of gin, and sample them both neat and with tonic. Then, meet the makers and learn all about the gin producing process. Junipalooza will take place at The Timber Yard in Port Melbourne from Friday October 21 to Sunday October 23.
This gin celebration has taken over London, Hamburg and Sydney, and is now returning to Melbourne for its fifth year.
