Cornwall Gin Festival

June 18th, 2018

What better way to spend the day than in the summer sun, relaxing with a refreshing gin and tonic in hand!? Luckily, the Cornwall Gin Festival is returning to Truro for another year, allowing you to do just that with fellow gin enthusiasts! Here’s all you need to know about the festival.


The ever-popular festival will be setting up on Lemon Quay on the 23rdJune for one day only. As well as having plenty of Cornish gin and tonic to sample, the festival will also see some great musical performances from Cornish acts and educational demonstrations to teach you all about this much-loved beverage! Of course, no festival would be complete without a few nibbles, and the Cornwall Gin Festival is no exception, with plenty of food stalls from local Cornish eateries and businesses.


The day is split into two sessions; the first runs from 12pm to 5pm, and the second from 6pm until 11pm. Each session costs £12 to attend, and those with a ticket will receive a free festival gin glass to take home with them. The daytime session will focus more on learning about gin, with exciting demonstrations to help you get the best tastes out of your favourite drink! The night sessions are more about the music, with live performances to tap your feet along to (your hands will be preoccupied with holding glasses of gin!). The informative sessions will teach you all about the science of botanicals, how to make the perfect gin sling, and which garnishes work best with your favourite gin!


The event is strictly over-18’s only and is a ticketed event, so if you want to go and experience some of the gin-based fun, then be sure to get hold of a ticket quick! Use the festival as an excuse to enjoy Cornwall short breaks and turn your love of gin into a fun weekend getaway!
