Ticket price

Join John Harris for the festival’s annual gin and tonic tasting. The pursuit of excellence in well-flavoured aperitifs is the goal of the annual tasting, an event now attracting a cult following of dogged researchers of all adult ages, hot on the trail of botanical bounty and the perfect pick-me-up.

Gin, the sophisticated cocktail ingredient with a vibrant history, has made a great journey to become Britain’s favourite spirit aperitif. Today, this versatile, restorative beverage offers an astonishing range of flavours, fragrances and varieties. Britain is still home to the world’s best dry gins, a reputation enhanced by a proliferation of innovative boutique products, challenged by continental newcomers, and enhanced by a sparkling new range of tonics.

This is another great opportunity to advance the frontiers of knowledge and appreciation, again in pursuit of the perfect balance between gin strength and tonic flavour. The findings of previous G&T seminars will be re-evaluated, but further research is always required.  So, please step forward and join Harris, festival president and gin enthusiast,  who leads a tasting of contrasting gins, flavoured by mysterious botanicals and exotic fruits.  Discover your favourite G&T combination – and remember to come on the bus.

This responsibly run event, which usually lasts up to 90 minutes, is open to participants aged 21 and above – proof of age may be required.
