DESCRIBED as an ‘Aladdin’s cave of craft spirits’, The Gin To My Tonic Show: The Ultimate Craft Spirit Festival, is set to delight the people of the North East of Scotland, when it returns on Friday 25th & Saturday 26th August 2023.

Organisers of the show promise a new and exciting line-up of craft spirit producers to take visitors on the ultimate spirited adventure.

Paul Hudson-Jones, Managing Director, said: “Scotland has a thriving distilling scene, and The Gin To My Tonic Show is there to celebrate this and shine a spotlight on the work of some of Scotland’s very best producers. The festival is unique due to the number of makers in attendance, but also in that you can try multiple spirits as part of your part of your ticket price in order to find a new favourite. 

“Don’t be confused by the name, whilst gin is proudly on display, you’ll discover rum, vodka, whisky, tequila and more! You’ll struggle to find a better day out this year and sampling is all part of the fun. No other Craft Spirit Festival brings together the wonderful world of craft spirits in quite the same way, so for those looking to celebrate all things craft with the UK’s very best spirit producers, then this is most certainly the festival for you.” 

We’ll be welcoming a wealth of Scottish producers, including local distillers such as City of Aberdeen Distillery, HRAFN, Roehill Springs, Black Thistle Distilleries, Cabezon Rum, Outlaw Rum and Dark Matter Distillers, along with Scottish powerhouses Hendricks Gin and Isle of Harris.

Claire-Lena Miller-Davis, Exhibition Sales Manager at P&J Live, said: “We are really pleased to see the return of The Gin To My Tonic Show in 2023 following a really successful event in summer this year. With the show expected to grow year-on-year with a wide variety of spirit brands on offer, ticketholders will be in for a treat as they’re taken on the ultimate spirit adventure. Let the fun be-gin!“
