Fancy a cold G&T on a hot summer’s day? Then get ready for that sweet taste of juniper at Hong Kong’s premier gin event, Gin Festival HK, taking place at the Renaissance Hotel in Wan Chai on 17 August.
Your Gin Passport gives you access to over 100 gins available to taste, plus lots of music, food, entertainment, and ‘gin-spiration’.
A number of top gin brands and distilleries will be there to tell you about their product in person as you sample their gin, either neat or with tonic, some of which are limited edition.
And Hong Kong’s best bars will be on site, with their bartenders mixing up special gin-inspired cocktails (for an additional ticket price).
Tickets are HK$190.00 and available from Ticketflap. A ticket includes a welcome gin cocktail, access to all festival activities including tastings, a branded gin glass, a festival guide, and free entry to seminars and tastings.
The seminars take place every hour, where distillers and ambassadors will be giving talks about how gin is made, plus exclusive tastings for seminar attendees.
The seminars are available on a first-come-first-served basis and are a great opportunity to learn more about gin while sampling some of the best in the market.To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
