Junipalooza is still due to happen in September, but there’s no two ways about it; Not celebrating all things juniper-related in a couple of weeks alongside thousands of gin super geeks, as we have done for the past 7 years, really sucks.
A postponed event may only mean a bit more waiting, sure, but there’s something special about tasting samples of strange and wonderful gins, meeting the makers who craft them and hanging about with fellow enthusiasts ahead of the summer that will be dearly missed
And so, we refuse to accept this version of reality and we will try to bend it to our whim instead, aiming for a compromise that sees everyone getting a small dose of fun (and more importantly – gin). We will host a mini virtua-palooza on Saturday 6th June at 5PM.
The premise is simple. We’ll get four 30ml samples, place them in a box and deliver them to your door, and see you on Zoom for a 1.15h of fast paced tutored tasting with the four distillers who made them – live from their respective distilleries.
The twist is a delightfully teasing one… We’re not going to tell you what’s in it. Not even in the box as the samples will simply be marked 1 – 4 and the only way to know who made it, which gin is inside or any information about it will be to join in the tasting.
Want some clues? You will not have tasted one before as it’s not even out yet. You will not have tasted another unless you were hot off the mark before it sold out in a 48h period last year. You will be amazed how one can be so citrussy yet contain none in its botanical line up and last but not least, you’ll be able to taste one that won the World’s Best Gin (best in show) the year it debuted almost a decade ago. Cryptic enough? We hope so.
The catch, we can only make 200 packs so there will not be enough for everyone. We hope that some of you can join us in this blind tasting come virtual distillery drop in and look forward to hosting a whirlwind tour, recreating some of our beloved Junipalooza experience in living rooms around the country!
