Junipalooza is set to be the UK’s biggest festival ever dedicated to gin
Junipalooza has been designed to celebrate GIN and the diversity now on offer. Taking all the elements from the UK's best food & drink festivals and assembling them into one space - it will truly be a unique occasion and the gin event of the year.
Junipalooza will feature immersive installations that combine botanicals, industrial warehousing and makers from around the globe. They will each be on hand sampling their gin, explaining how it's made and showcasing the finest gin related items. Let's face it, it's the only place to be if you love gin.
To boot, there will be a Drinks by the Dram shop there too, where over 60 different gins will be available to buy in 30ml sample-sized bottles. Perfect for exploring new gins at home!
