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: Dozens and dozens of gin makers in one room, sharing their love for the spirit and serving up samples and stories for all to enjoy.
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 an armful.
This year, we’ve added a Friday night speed tasting event to the schedule. 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 it’s 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.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
You must be over the age of 18 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.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
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.

What can/can't I bring to the event?
Curious minds and water are always welcome! We strongly encourage responsible drinking so there will be plenty of freely available water at each stand. If you would like to bring your own bottle, that's also fine.
Eating is strongly advised! Tobacco Dock offer some catering options, but we'd also advise you to eat a hearty meal before going.
We do not allow anyone to bring in their own gin / alcohol.
We do not allow anyone to bring their own glassware.
We will not have a cloak room and will not be able to store bags or coats.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Unfortunately, tickets are not transferable or exchangeable for another session or date.
I can’t attend any longer – 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.
