Take a ‘spirited’ adventure with the UK’s Best Craft Gin, Rum & Vodka Festival – includes Lemonade. We are uniting hundreds of different craft gins, spirits and distillers under one roof to create what can only be described as one epic celebration!

Our aim is simple – to celebrate and raise awareness of fabulous craft gins, spirits and distillers, introduce you to new gins, rums and vodkas you may not have discovered before, and let you enjoy tasting samples as part of your tickets from an array of onsite craft distillers all excited to meet with you. Sampling is all part of the fun, and we are proud to be regarded as the ‘festival of choice’ for craft distillers. It means we will always have the very best producers ready and waiting to sample with you, which in turn will always ensure you leave suitably inspired and more knowledgeable than before.

Beyond our sampling area, we have extensively stocked bars with hundreds of different craft gins and spirits to tantalise you with. Whilst gin is proudly showcased on our menus, we now offer so much more than just gin with rum, vodka, tequila, cocktails, prosecco and even beer now on offer!
