If you’re anything like us here at Urban List, you’ll be all about the epic resurgence that gin has been experiencing of late. Well hold on to your hats gin fans because you’ll soon be able to sip your way through 15 craft gins from local and international brands.
Gindulgence is NZ’s original single site gin festival, celebrating all things Gin and in collaboration with the legends at Craftd. It was created to show off the impressive array of distillers that we have in NZ. It was held for the first time in Christchurch in 2018 to a sell-out crowd and now for the first time Aucklanders will be able to get in on the sippin’ action.
Your golden gin ticket will set you back a mere $49 and will grant you entry to the festival and a gin glass to keep. You’ll get access to gin tastings, meet the makers and attend gin, cocktail and tonic masterclasses in the on-site Gin Theatre.
The brains behind the—frankly, genius—Pineapple L*** Gin, 1919 distilling, alongside partners in crime Blush gin will be there with three other distillers to dish out the smarts in their gin masterclasses. Sign us up!
As if all that’s not enough, you can expect damn delicious food to help fuel your tasting experience and entertainment to enjoy while you sip on your gin of choice.
You’ll even have the option to buy a bottle or two of your favourite tipples to take home, to impress your friends with your new-found cocktail slinging skills.
Grab tickets while you can as they’re likely to disappear faster than the gin on your top shelf.
