Running from Friday, September 27 to Sunday, September 29, it will see distilleries represented including Griffiths Brothers, Hinch Distillery, Silent Pool, Macmyra, Gin & Jones, and Chatham-based Copper Rivet.

Award-winning mixologists will be serving cocktails from two exclusive bars, while experts from the country’s best gin makers will be on hand to lead masterclasses and talk through the process of distilling.

Guests can also learn how to make classic drinks at interactive workshops and visit The Gin Lounge Shop to pick up bottles and gifts to take home.
