Junipalooza London

What’s Junipalooza you ask? Let’s break it down:
Juni: an abbreviation of Gin’s signature botanical, juniper.
Palooza: a party, celebration or festival.

Junipalooza is back at Tobacco Dock on World Gin Day 2017, with more events, more masterclasses and more gins than ever before.

The annual Gin festival is a very much one of a kind; not only are all of the makers behind each gin there to talk you through their products in person, but every single gin is free to sample and comes with the option to drink neat or with tonic.

Over 40 gin brands will be in attendance, with over 100 gins on offer between them. Once through the door, you’ll be handed a tasting glass and off you go to taste you way through the next four hours. Your ticket entitles you to as many samples as you’d like to try, as well as access to a range of talks and masterclasses from industry experts, a great cocktail bar and a room full of gin geeks having the best time since… well, last year’s stellar event.

You’ll also have the opportunity to buy directly from the makers; to hear their stories and become a part of them. Gin Kiosk also has a shop on site if you don’t want to carry the gins around all day you can take your tasting notes to them at the end of the session and pick up and armful.

This year, we’ve added a Friday night speed tasting event to the schedule (more on this soon). Distillers (and their gins, of course), will join you and your friends at your table to share stories and samples, before moving onto the next table (while yet another gin maker joins you at yours).

Now in its fourth year, Junipalooza is a huge event and undoubtedly the best way to spend World Gin Day. The festival is £30per person, but we’ve set aside a limited number of early bird tickets at £20. Scroll down to browse tickets…

Is my ticket transferrable?

Unfortunately, tickets are not transferable or exchangeable for another session or date.

Can I get a refund?

We understand this can happen and in principal, this is fine and we will issue a refund. However, please note that we only accept and process refunds submitted 5 working days prior to the date of the event. After this point, all tickets are non refundable.

How old is enough?

You must be over the age of 21 to enter Junipalooza.

We do allow adults who have bought tickets to bring their children (under 5) along, as long as their are two adults per child. As it is a gin show, please be aware there will be nothing to cater to children. It is all about gin.

Please also be aware that we cannot accept any form of underage drinking whatsoever - even if it is the parent giving a seemingly innocent "sip, try, test" to their own child. Anyone seen doing this will be asked to leave immediately.

Can I buy gin at the event?

Each gin maker will be able to sell their gin from their stands, so you can by directly from the producers. Some will accept cards but many will not have machines, so if you specifically want to get your gin fix from the makers themselves, bring cash just in case.

Alternatively, to make it convenient and easy, Gin Kiosk will be also there, stocking all of the gins at the show, at the same price as on each of the stands. That way, you can pick it all up in one go, pay by card and not have to walk around laden with bottles!
