Just the tonic! The ultimate gin festival returns to Liverpool with unlimited tastings


Gin lovers rejoice! The Gin To My Tonic Show returns to the Exhibition Centre Liverpool next month with unlimited tastings.

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.

Taking place from September 6-9, The Gin To My Tonic Show will once again play host to over 50 premium gin and tonic brands from across the UK and beyond, providing a unique opportunity for gin lovers to meet-the makers and discover even more about everybody’s favourite juniper-based tipple.

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.

Paul explained: “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 will take you on a journey of gin discovery.”

Following the success of the show in September 2018,  attendees 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.

Emira added: “Liverpool is a wonderful city with a thriving gin scene, we are thrilled to be bringing the show back in 2019. As before, this will be an event to remember and will showcase 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. 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.
