The gin craze is still going strong in 2018 and for good reason! So, we ask you, what could be better than an entire festival dedicated to the love of the ever-popular G&T? Yes, folks, the Gin & Tonic Festival is back with a bang this year and it promises to be bigger and better than years gone by.

Taking place on Sunday on 25 February at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, Cape Town the festival will showcase some of South Africa’s most talented – and spirited – gin creators as well as local music acts on three live music stages. Live acts include the likes of Roastin’ Records, Christian Tiger School, Diamond Thug and Nomadic Orchestra.

Along with well-known returning names such as Bloedlemoen Gin, New Harbour Distillery, Six Dogs Distillery, and Strettons Gin, an expansive range of brand new local brands will also be on display including Triple Three Distillery, De Vry Distillery, Wixworth Gin, and Monks Gin. This year, the festival also welcomes international brands such as The Botanist, Elephant Gin, Tanqueray Gin, Hendricks, Beefeater Gin and Monkey 47 Dry Gin.
