The Gin To My Tonic Show is not your typical gin event.

If you want to be inspired as well as entertained and feel like you’ve had the ultimate gin-centric experience then this show is for you. As well as a chance to sample and buy a diverse range of artisan and craft gins, you will walk away feeling satisfied that this was more than just an exhibition. With cocktail making masterclasses, blind taste challenges, presentations from distilleries, tonic and garnish tutorials, and theatrical bartender performances, it’s the ultimate interactive gin experience coming to the city on the 7th-9th September.

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. Over the course of 10 months they have amassed an impressive 30,000 followers on Instagram alone and have attracted the attention of gin distillers and premium mixers worldwide.

The Gin To My Tonic has quickly become a trusted and relatable source on all things gin, and with the launch of The Gin To My Tonic Show, the duo will continue their love of inspiring gin drinkers in a way that doesn’t come across as stuffy or inaccessible. Co-Founder Paul Hudson-Jones said “Gin drinking habits have changed dramatically in the last five years and today’s gin drinkers demand to know more not only about what they are purchasing, but also how it can be served. The show is there to take you on a journey of discovery” 

The Gin To My Tonic Show has been created around the idea of discover, taste, learn and master. Its aim is to provide today’s gin drinker with an opportunity to DISCOVER new products, TASTE a spectrum of flavours, LEARN about the unique aspects of gin, and MASTER the perfect serve.

Co-Founder Emira Shepherd said “Liverpool has a vibrancy and cosmopolitan character that you won’t find anywhere else. We are delighted to be working with Exhibition Centre Liverpool to bring this show to life. We can’t wait to share the wonderful world of gin in a fun, different and engaging way!”

The show will be filled with premium brands, industry experts and hundreds of products bursting with inspiration. To celebrate gin The Gin To My Tonic Show will unite every aspect of the market, from distilleries and distributors, premium mixers and complimentary spirits, and associated foods and accessories.
