Juniperlooza: Melbourne’s massive gin festival takes over The Boatbuilders Yard this month

Melbourne’s one-day gin extravaganza, Juniperlooza, is set for a return this month with a packed line-up of 19 independent Australian and international producers who will be showcasing their expressions as well as exclusive cocktails up and down the waterside Boatbuilders Yard. In addition, there’ll be a bunch of “Talk & Taste” sessions spread throughout the day, taking place in the gorgeous 19th Century Polly Woodside ship which is docked at the venue.

As with previous years, each gin producer of the 19 confirmed will be offering up two different drinks from their respective stalls. One will be their own take on the classic gin & tonic, while the other a surprise signature gin-inspired cocktail revealed on the day. Taking part is a who’s who of both established and emerging producers including: Adelaide Hills, Animus, Archie Rose, Bass & Flinders, Blind Tiger, East London Liquor Company, Four Pillars, Forty Spotted, Husk Distillery, Kangaroo Island Spirits, Kilderkin, McHenry Distillery, Melbourne Gin Company, Mt Uncle, Ounce, Patient Wolf, Poor Toms, The Botanist and West Winds Gin.

Gin-inspired food will be making a show and available at various stalls on the day while all the action is soundtracked by live music and roving entertainment.

Tickets to the event are set at $45 each and include entry as well as 1 G&T voucher to be redeemed at any stall. You can grab tickets HERE.
