Find The Gin To Your Tonic – Quite Literally – At This Spirited Drinks Festival

Let the good times be-gin: St Mary’s Church won’t just be serving sips of wine to the congregation on the last weekend of February, 2023. Oh, no. The contemporary Marylebone venue will be hosting much-loved The Gin To My Tonic Festival. Returning to the capital for the fourth time since its debut in 2019, this fun festival will give you the chance to discover your new favourite spirits between February 24–25.

The Gin To My Tonic Festival brings together a variety of artisan craft spirit producers under one roof, boasting over 120 different spirits. Ticket holders will embark on an adventure of flavour, given the chance to wet their whistle with yuzu and Szechuan pepper, watermelon, and raspberry and mango gins to name but a few. Despite its name, the festival doesn’t just offer gin and tonic water; there’ll be a wide variety of rum, whisky, tequila and vodka distillers at the event, plus lemonade and soda mixers too. What’s more, some of the gin and rum you’ll find is completely exclusive to The Gin To My Tonic Festival – and it’d be rude not to taste samples from each, right?

Setting the soundtrack to all the revelry, live DJs and performers will truly get you into the spirit, and bars will serve up cocktails once you’re done with your tasters from the stalls (or, you know, if you want to stop for a drink in between). Each ticket holder will nab a tote bag of goodies too: a Gin To My Tonic balloon copa glass; a pen; a stainless steel straw; and a gin explorers’ guide, detailing the range of craft gins and spirits available at the festival. Cheers to that!

Get your tickets early, so you don’t miss out; you can choose between afternoon or evening slots across the Friday and Saturday. Or, how about gifting an experience to the gin- (or rum, vodka or whisky-) lover in your life, and buy them tickets to The Gin To My Tonic Festival this Christmas? You’re sure to earn the title of ‘gin’ to their ‘tonic’ if you do…
