Celebrating World Gin Day 2015

My picks on where you should be celebrating World Gin Day 2015!

Melbourne

Gin Palace

Gin-Palace-Melbourne

The centre of the Melbourne gin scene, Gin Palace puts the rest of the nation to shame with it’s stupendous line up of workshops. Not one, not 2 but 8 events will be happening at the Gin Palace on World Gin Day, starting with Breakfast Bubbles at 12pm and finishing with a Botanical Masterclass at 5pm The full listing can be found here. Remember to pace yourselves people!

Thomas Olive

You may have seen Alan and Connor from Thomas Olive stripping off in Broadsheet to highlight the high taxation on Australian spirits! From Tuesday 9th until Saturday 13th Thomas Olive and West Winds Gin will be covering all of the excise tax applied to West Winds Gin, meaning martinis and Gin and Tonics will be half price. Hopefully, these two will have found their clothes by then.

Bass & Flinders
