It doesn’t get much better than a day filled with gin and with World Gin Day happening on Saturday 12 June, it’s the perfect time to give the boozy staple the recognition that it deserves. Celebrate in style at Brisbane’s newest gin bar and distillery, Eleven Bridges, with their World Gin Day event.
Tucked down a quiet South Brisbane Street, this bar is centered around the greatness that is gin—so you know they’ll have plenty of the spirit on hand, but there’s a heap of distilleries joining them for the day to make it even better. $30 will score you entry to the festival where you’ll get a classic G&T on arrival made with one of the 100+ gins on the Eleven Bridges shelf. The best part though, is that you’ll have the chance to sample twelve (yes, twelve) different gins from an array of distilleries across Australia. You can even purchase a bottle (or many) of your favourites to take home and save for later.
We know you’ll be going for the gin samples (us too) but there will also be food trucks if you get hungry and expertly made gin cocktails which you can buy tickets for beforehand or on the day. Happening from 2pm on 12 June, more information and tickets can be found here, and they’re selling out fast, so jump on that link quickly.
If wine is more your thing, check out this wine festival happening soon.
