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! Taking place at Tobacco Dock to celebrate World Gin Day 2019 on the 8th and 9th June, this year will take its lead from the 2018 edition and continue to focus on experience: we’re going to take you inside the minds of the makers, letting you get hands on as you strive to learn more about the spirit.

Last year we launched the newcomers zone to rave reviews. New, hot off the press, so-young-they-haven’t-even-got-a-website-yet Gin brands are invited to the zone to test their wares on you – the most discerning Gin fans in the world. You’ll be able to taste something that very few people have ever tasted before, and you’ll be able to meet these makers at a crucial stage in their careers.We’ve got even bigger plans for this in 2019.

Our annual Gin festival is 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 (responsibly) and comes with the option to try neat or with tonic included in the ticket price. Take notes and take your time, as with so many gins to pick from you’ll want to make sure you have the time and temperament to taste as many as you want.

There’ll be over 60 gin distillers in attendance, with well over 200 gins on offer between them. Once through the door, you’ll be handed a tasting glass, a show guide and some water and sent on your way to a four hour Gin odyssey.

Junipalooza is a great chance to hear the stories, dreams and ideas that have gone into each drop of liquid being being served. We have a strict owner or maker policy at the show, so this is a very unique opportunity to meet the makers behind craft gins from around the world, with distillers (and drinkers) from all corners flying over to join in the festivities.

You’ll also have the opportunity to buy directly from some of the makers, and our sister shop, Gin Kiosk, will be on hand too. The good news is, they’re running a click and collect set-up, so you can buy as you go and collect at the end, which will stop you missing out on sell out gins but also save your arms a workout! Simply take your tasting notes to them at the end of the session and pick up the latest additions to your Gin cabinet.

This will be Junipalooza’s sixth year and we’re so excited by it. We grow every year, not just in size but in our ability to understand what it is you want from the show. We’ve got some stellar food options available, we’re making sure you’re going to be well watered and you’ll be presented with more opportunities for mixing your gin than you ever thought possible.

Keep your eyes peeled for more news, a new section to the show along with other reveals and our brand new website… but don’t miss out, get your tickets for Juniplaooza 2019 here.

Think it's too early on a Sunday? Don't worry - head to the bar a pick up a Red Snapper to get in the mood.

It's over for 2018

The Sunday session is an hour longer than Saturday's, meaning you have a little longer to talk, schmooze and sip your way around the show.

Please note, all stands will stop serving gin 10 mins before the end of the session.

The shop will remain open for a further 10 mins after the session closes, so you can stock up on your favourites if you when leaving, if you missed the chance to get your gin directly from the makers (all prices will be matched in the shop to whatever the Gin Makers are selling at their stands).

Stay Sharp and discover all the flavours

Water plays a vital role in gin tasting. Not only does it keep you in peak tasting condition, but certain ABV's will favour certain flavour profiles and it is a fact that many distillers take seriously. For most gins, water is 60% of the contents of the bottle...

When it comes to tasting - with careful addition of water to your glass, you can unlock all the nuances in each of the gin. Give it a try over the weekend and please, enjoy your drink responsibly.

Tobacco Dock is located at the junction of Wapping Lane and Pennington Street, E1. The nearest Overground station is Wapping - no more than 5 minute walk from the venue.

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 as soon as we can, just email via the Eventbrite system, or directly to info@ginfoundry.com with your order number.

However, please note that we only accept and process refunds submitted before June 1st.

After this point, all tickets are non refundable, no matter the reason. Sorry.

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 there are two adults per child. As it is a gin show, please be aware there will be nothing to cater to children nor really the kind of place where they can just run around (as there are lots of rooms and they will be quickly out of sight).

Junipalooza 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!
