Event Description: 

Pen this in your diary, save it on your calendars, cancel any other plans you may have!

South Australia is the “Festival State” and the “Gin State”, so what better way to celebrate such titles than to have a Gin Festival? Inside the Flour Shed, the main bar – “Ginsational” – will be run by one of Adelaide’s favourite gin dens, The Howling Owl, making gin cocktails with some of the finest Australian Gins. Festival goers will also be able to try free samples from around 20 different gin distillers and enjoy the beauty of the garnish bar, hosted by Fever Tree tonic and Adelaide bar, Haines & Co. Outside there will be a selection of amazing local food vendors, to let you dine with friends under the leafy canopy of Mundy Street. Gincident will kickstart you into the spirit of Christmas (get it?!) with festive craft stalls and Christmas-Special Gin batches, so you can get a head start on your shopping!

Some of the Gintastic companies sharing their Gin at the Festival will include, Prohibition Liquor Co., Archie Rose, Four Pillars, Adelaide Hills Distillery, McHenry, Cape Byron, Never Never, Kangaroo Island Gin, Animus Distillery, Luxe Wine + Spirits, Martin Distillation Co., Reed & Co. and 36 Short.

Develop that refined love of Gin at the Masterclass sessions with local distillers & do some Gin Christmas gift shopping.

Any Excuse…to bring your friends together this festive season!

In Gin we trust.


What does your ticket include?

Entry into Gincident - an event that happened due to one too many gins! 1 Dec 2018, a branded Gincident Cup to the first 3000 through the gate. Collect your Gincident cup at the Ginformation booth on arrival. This will be used for your 5ml tasting samples from distillers (to be rinsed at stalls), to fill up with purchases of a refreshing G&T or tasty cocktail throughout the day. Please hold onto this as it is your link to the joys of the juniper berry all day. Gincident Showbags will also be available for pre-purchase at $15 or on site for $20 with some fabulous giveaways.

Can I enjoy my Gin with some live music?
You certainly can! There will be live entertainment throughout the event.

Will there be food?
Yes indeed! Some of the best food vans in Adelaide, no less. Delicious food to enjoy with amazing Gin.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

A children's craft tent will be happening in Mundy Street with lots of great food for them, Henna art and music for those who need to attend with their parents. $10 entry on the gate only for kids (over 12) . Children under 12 free with full parental supervision.

Can we buy tickets on the door on the day of the event?
