In just under three weeks’ time, Liverpool will be playing host to one of the largest celebrations of gin that the North West has ever seen.

The Gin To My Tonic is the brainchild of lifelong friends and fellow gin drinkers Emira Shepherd and Paul Hudson-Jones. Their love of all things gin inspired them to take a leap into the world of social media blogging and begin sharing their own personal gin journey on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter as part of a New Year’s resolution in 2017.

Over 18 months they have amassed an impressive 62,000 followers and have attracted the attention of gin distillers and premium mixer brands worldwide. They now run a range of gin-centric events across the UK including The Gin To My Tonic Show, The Gin To My Tonic Festivals and a range of intimate tasting events at venues such as Cardiff Castle. The Gin To My Tonic Show returns to the city from Friday 6 – Saturday 8 September and here is all you need to know ahead of this incredible live event:

  • Multi-Award Winners – Meet some of gin’s finest producers including Eden Mill, Brighton Gin, Manchester Gin & Sipsmith
  • Liverpool Wonders – Celebrate Liverpool by visiting local artisan distillery, Turncoat and The Three Graces Rose Gin, along with long time favourite Liverpool Gin.
  • International Releases –  Take a sensory journey around the globe with gins from France (Normindia), Sri-Lanka (Colombo No 7), South East Asia (Tarsier) and Australia (Four Pillars & Manly Spirits)
  • Exclusives! Enjoy gin exclusives courtesy of The Gin To My Tonic, as they debut their Apple & Elderflower and Yuzu & Schezuan Pepper collaborations.
  • Fruit Gin – Let your taste buds run wild with new flavours including Cherry Blossom, Passionfruit, Rose & Soft Peach.
  • Tonic Time – Discover lots of different mixers including Buzzbee Beverages, Fever-Tree, Lixir, Jefferey’s Tonic, Schweppes and The Artisan Drinks Company
  • Gin School – Test your gin knowledge with a range of fun and informal masterclasses and workshops
  • And Relax – Enjoy a drink at ‘The Gin To My Tonic’ bar and enjoy the atmosphere!

Following the success of the show in September 2018, those in attendance will be able to DISCOVER the wonderful world of gin, TASTE a spectrum of flavours through unlimited tastings, LEARN about the unique aspects of the gin by attending gin and tonic workshops, and MASTER the perfect serve with cocktail making masterclasses.

The show will be filled with premium brands, industry experts and hundreds of products bursting with inspiration. And whilst gin is the primary focus, brands will also be showcasing their other creations including vodkas and rums!

This is a fun and exciting show not to be missed with something for every gin drinker old or new.
