The Gin To My Tonic Show will be appearing at P&J Live on Friday and Saturday, August 26-27, 2022.

An Aladdin’s cave of gin and craft spirits await all that attend the event, as gin distillers old and new unite to take ticketholders on the ultimate gin adventure. Visitors will be able to enjoy unlimited tasting samples as they work the room, with a choice of over 250 craft gins and spirits, but that’s not all.

The distillers on show will also be sharing vodka, rum, whisky, and more, meaning there’s something for everyone.

No other gin festival brings together the wonderful world of craft gin and spirits in quite the same way, so for those looking to celebrate all things gin and gin-dulge with the UK’s very best craft spirit producers, then this is most certainly the gin festival for them.

Paul Hudson-Jones, Managing Director of The Gin To My Tonic, said: “Scotland has a vibrant, innovative and highly respected craft gin and distilling scene and The Gin To My Tonic Show is there to celebrate this.

"Our ethos has always been to unite gin makers with gin lovers in a fun and immersive way, with a passion for showcasing small batch craft gins and crafts spirits that are not always readily available. The festival is unique due to the number of makers in attendance, but also in that you can try multiple spirits onsite as part of your ticket in order to find a new favourite.

"Having run the festival in Glasgow for three years and winning various awards, including Industry Choice Gin Event, we are beyond excited to be adding additional dates, such as Aberdeen and helping fly the flag for Scottish gin makers.”

Claire-Lena Miller-Davis, Exhibition Sales Manager at P&J Live, added: “The popularity of gin has gone through the roof in recent years, with many new independent and well-known favourites coming to market with new and unique flavour twists, much to the surprise and delight of gin connoisseurs.

"We are really pleased to welcome the Gin To My Tonic Show to P&J Live next year, and look forward to gin-dulging in everything that it has to offer.”
