What’s Junipalooza you ask? Let’s break it down:
Juni: An abbreviation of Gin’s signature botanical, juniper.
Palooza: A party, celebration or festival.
Junipalooza: Dozens and dozens of gin makers in one room, sharing their love for the spirit and serving up samples and stories for all to enjoy.
Junipalooza Melbourne is the hottest ticket on the Australian Gin scene, with dozens of distillers gathering under one roof to share their wares with the vanguard of thirsty gin enthusiasts.
The festival is a tribute to Gin, made by people who love it, starring people who make it and filled to the brim with curious minds proffering empty glasses.
They don’t stay empty for long – each guest is given their very own keepsake tasting glass to take around the show. There will be over 50 different distillers sharing well over a hundred different gins between them and you’ll be able to stop by whichever ones take your fancy and try their gins both neat and with tonic.
Junipalooza, now in its fifth year in Melbourne, is a meet the maker festival.
Either the distiller or brand owner has to be there in person – we want you to be able to meet the people that put everything they have into the gins they make. We want you to be able to see their passion with your own eyes and gain some real context about the world of Gin.
