Gin lovers, this may be one of the most popular gin events of the year! Not only will you get to taste heaps of local gin brands, but you’ll also get to enjoy the gorgeous venue, the stunning Glen Ewin Estate.
Glen Ewin is hosting Gin Fest, back after a 2020 hiatus, on June 13 on their beautiful grounds. “Bigger, better, and packed with opportunities,” according to the venue, the event will have gin masterclasses, tastings, and a selection of food trucks available so you can eat to your heart’s content.
Don’t want to drive to and from the event (due to lots of gin consumption, perhaps)? Glen Ewin has that covered, too. There’s a Gin Bus by Des’s Minibus running from the estate to Adelaide’s CBD so you can drink and then get home safely from the event, set to celebrate World Gin Day.
Guests can go to the Pulpshed, a rustic 178-year-old building in the Adelaide Hills, from 11am to 5pm to taste offerings from local distilleries, try drinks and cocktails, or take home their favourite gins from the bottleshop.
There will also be gin masterclasses, including an amazing-sounding Pot & Still Fig Gin masterclass, inspired by Glen Ewin Estate’s Figbar and gin, held in the Wineshed, and additional masterclasses by various local distillers in the Gatehouse.
For complete gin fanatics (or just anyone looking to have an exceptionally good time), there’s also a special offering in the VIP Lounge, with a canapés and drinks package on offer from 12 – 3pm in the cellar door area. The lounge will open at 12pm and last until close as somewhat of an “afterparty” to the epic Gin Fest.
Gin is one of our passions, and Glen Ewin is one of South Australia’s most gorgeous venues, so you can understand why we’re very excited about this event!
