Scot Gin Fest launched in Glasgow in September 2017 and sold out in astonishing speed. The festival concept, which brings together over 20 gin producers from all over Scotland, has been masterminded by Glasgow-born foodie entrepreneur Chris Gallen, who owns the well-loved artisan venue Gray’s Deli in Broomhill. 

Chris said “Through Gray’s Deli I have witnessed the explosion of Scottish craft gin. Our customers are loving all the new releases on our shelves; Scot Gin Fest was the natural progression and I was confident that there would be demand for our festival concept in Glasgow and beyond.

“Scotland now leads the world in craft gin production and all indicators suggest the current global appetite for our gin will continue to grow in the coming years.  

“After the sell-out success of our Glasgow festival, which included the launch of 3 new craft gin brands, we began researching the idea of taking Scot Gin Fest on tour. We have now confirmed three additional destinations to roll out our winning formula across Scotland.”

The Scot Gin Fest Masterclass Series will return at each event for gin enthusiasts to taste and get an in-depth look at the inner workings of their favourite craft gin distiller and enjoy the intimate stories that make each of these gins unique.

This year Scottish broadcaster and journalist Hardeep Singh Kohli will speak at each of the festivals and will be Guest Editor for the new festival magazine, Ginnovators, available exclusively at each Scot Gin Fest location.

Tickets go on sale on 1 DECECMBER 2017 and are available from SCOTGINFEST.CO.UK with prices starting at £15.
