Make the most of your festival tickets

Congratulations you have purchased tickets to the Adelaide Gin Festival!

If you are new to gin and feel that you would benefit from helpful information before you get to the festival then you are the right person for this PRE EVENT, INFORMATION TASTING SESSION.

The better informed you are when you arrive at the festival, your choices for tasting and purchases will be so much wiser. You can’t taste 250 gins so you need to taste the right ones, to suit you!

Threefold Master Distiller Aidan, will take you through the tasting of four gins and explain what you are smelling (what is Juniper?) and tasting (What is acid?) and what do the alcohol percentages mean? He will explain why these gins differ and you will be able to decide which type of gin best suits your palate.

Classic? Sloe? London Dry? Barrel Aged? Flavoured? – what does all of this mean?

This will be held at Threefold Distilling
524 Anzac Hwy, Glenelg East, SA 5045 on
Thursday June 6 at 6pm, for 1 hour. $40 per person.

Line up of 4 gins, London Dry, Aromatic Gin, Shiraz Gin and Barrel Aged Aromatic Gin held by the Distiller Aidan Shaw.
Includes distillery tour and tasty foods to compliment the tastings.
