We've complained about the cold all winter long and now it's time to complain about that scary time of the year again: hay fever season. And what’s better than a generous gulp of high-quality gin to chase those sniffles away? Nothing, that's what.
The Craft & Co. is gearing up for spring with their popular Spring Gin Market on Saturday 7 September and Sunday 8 September.
With over 10 market stalls of various Aussie distillers, there will be no shortage of stuff for you to try. Some of the stallholders include Imbue Distillery, Bass & Flinders, Brogan’s Way, Blind Tiger, Karu Distillery, Mountain Gin and more.
Included in the ridiculously low entry price of $10 is a $5 voucher to use at the market checkout on the day, which includes free tastings at all the market stalls. Be warned, however, that each session has strictly limited ticket allocations, so once the ticket is sold, that’s it. And in case you thought you could just waltz in and wave your dollars at the door, think again: there are also no walk-ins, so make sure to secure your ticket ahead of time.
You can also have a nibble or a drink in The Craft & Co’s eatery and bar throughout the day, but we suggest you book tables ahead of time to avoid disappointment. Don't procrastinate on this one.
