Calling all G&T lovers – The Fever-Tree Online Gin & Tonic Festival is coming to a screen near you
Lockdown might be over, but quarantinis are thankfully here to stay. If you consider yourself somewhat of a gin enthusiast, then mark World Gin Day (Saturday June 13) in your calendar for the ultimate virtual tipple-tasting event where you become the bartender – The Fever-Tree Online Gin & Tonic Festival.
Live streamed from 5:30–7:00 pm, The Fever-Tree Online Gin & Tonic Festival will take keen sippers and their tastebuds on a botanical journey as they learn all things gin-and-tonic-related from the comforts of their home. The free virtual festival’s program includes guided tastings from some of Australia’s top distilleries, cocktail-making tutorials, interactive drinking games and more. For those looking to up-skill in the mixology department, there will be cocktail masterclasses from Four Pillars, Masterchef’s Simon Toohey and baller bartender Trish Brew with the Gin Queen herself.
All ticket holders will receive free access to the virtual event via a link emailed to participants on the event day. There’s also no need to rummage through your at-home bar, as there are a number of jam-packed festival kits available to order that are delivered directly to your door. The kit stocks all you need to make the perfect homemade gin and tonic, including eight mini gin samples, eight Fever Tree tonics and homemade dehydrated garnishes to top off your cocktail. It also boasts two gin glasses (one for you, one for your drinking buddy), a tasting mat, a blade for fruit slicing, a pairing guide and maybe the most important goodie of all – bar snacks.
Want to keep your spirits high and also flowing? Tickets to The Fever-Tree Online Gin & Tonic Festival are free with festival packs now available to purchase for $55 per person. Head here to grab yours.
