Junipalooza Melbourne is the hottest ticket on the Australian Gin scene, with dozens of distillers gathering under one roof to share their wares with hoards of thirsty fans. This year, following three sellout shows at the Meat Market, the festival is moving house, taking over MCEC for the weekend of 26th and 27th October 2019.
Junipalooza is a one of a kind show; not only are all of the makers behind each gin there to talk you through their products in person, every single gin on site is free for you to sample, and comes with the option to try both neat and with tonic.
Junipalooza Melbourne presents attendees with the unique opportunity to meet upwards of 40 distillers – to drill them on the madness behind their methods and to learn all about the botanicals and flavours at hand. These are people who've shaken off the shackles of corporate life to do their own thing; they're inspiring, driven creators who are only too keen to share their adventures with you over an ice cold G&T.
As well as sipping your way through dozens of delicious spirits, you'll be able to get hands on in the two experiential areas. Details for these are never revealed until close to the event, but in the past we've had live distillations and even tarot reading!
You'll have the opportunity to buy all of the gins directly from the brands, so not only will you hear their stories, you'll become a part of them, helping to drive them onwards to the next step in their journey. We'll also be stocking all of the gins in our onsite shop, so if you don't want to carry bottles around all day you can hand your tasting notes over to our helpers as the end of the session and pick up an armful.
Junipalooza is THE Melbourne event as far as Gin fans are concerned, offering obsessives the chance to try something entirely different and newbies the chance to fall in love with the most creative of spirits.
