Melbourne’s epic Juniperlooza announces 2020 program

With 2019 rolling to a close, it’s already time to start planning what Australian events you want to hit up in the first quarter of 2020. First up, the consistently excellent (and sell-out) gin festival of Juniperlooza will be back for Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th of February.

Taking over The Boatbuilders Yard and Polly Woodside in Melbourne, the increasingly popular festival has rounded up 23 boutique Australian and international gin producers and will once again offer guests the chance to hang out with the masterminds behind each of these individual gins.
Each producer will be bringing in their own signature cocktails, serving them up alongside both classic and reinterpreted versions of the summertime favourite G&T.

Producers guests can expect returning to the festival include Adelaide Hills, Archie Rose, Bass and Flingers Distillery, Four Pillars Gin, Ink Gin, Larrikin Gin, Forty Spotted Gin, The Melbourne Gin Company, Ounce Gin, Patient Wolf Din, McHenry Gin, Brookie’s Byron Gin, Cedar Fox Distilling Co, Monkey 47, Chase Gin, Never Never Distilling Co, Blind Tiger, The Botanist, Martin Millers, and East London Liquor Company.

Joining these returning favourites will be festival newcomers Applewood Gin, Hellfire Bluff Gin, and Brogan’s Way Gin.

Alongside a plethora of distinctive gins, StrangleLove tonics will once again be a heavy presence at the festival, as will live music, which for 2020 includes Agent 86, J’nett, and a variety of local DJs.

As the festival almost always sells out early, we advise jumping on the $30-$35 early bird tickets which go on sale from 18th to 19th November. General sale is scheduled for 20th November, with a price increase to $40-$45.

Tickets include festival entry, a G&T token and reusable straw.
