Why we love it

If you're a fan of gin (and let's face it, who isn't?) then you're going to absolutely love these fantastic events.

The Gin To My Tonic Show arrives in Cardiff this July!

The show offers a very different experience to the traditional festival, so for those looking to embark on an exciting journey of gin discovery, complete with unlimited tastings, this is most certainly the show for you. There are well-stocked gin and cocktail bars, tastings, presentations from distilleries, tonic and garnish tutorials, and theatrical bartender performances. But the main attraction is the large variety of distilleries, artisan gin makers and tonic manufacturers in attendance, which creates what can only be described as gin heaven. There’s plenty to keep you inspired and entertained as you work the room and celebrate everyone’s favourite juniper-based tipple.

And whilst gin is the primary focus of the show, makers will also be showcasing their other creations including vodka and rum. There really is something for everyone!

WHAT TO EXPECT: – Each of the brands in attendance will have their own unique space from which you learn about the backstories, botanical make-up and tasting notes. – Enjoy samples from each of the brands, but plan your time wisely as there’s plenty to discover. – Enjoy samples of other spirits like Vodka and Rum as brands showcase their wider creations. – Like what you’ve tried? Then you can purchase a full-size drink straight from the brand themselves, or even a bottle to take home for the your collection. – Learn about distillation methods and what makes brands unique by attending gin masterclasses. – Master the perfect serve with tonic and garnish tutorials. – Enjoy a drink at the bar and soak up the atmosphere.

So, what are you waiting for, grab your Copa glass and get ready to discover amazing gin, tonic and cocktails with ‘The Gin To My Tonic’. A GINcredible experience awaits!

We were disappointed with this event. We have been to a different gin festival at the passenger shed before and it was much better. There were not many gin companies there and the ones that were were local and not very unusual. The bars were much smaller with not as many gins available. Even though it was very quiet the service was slow. The music being played did not go with the event, it was just a DJ playing pop music, which no one was dancing too. The other festival had a live jazz band which we felt was much more appropriate and created a much better atmosphere. The venue seemed very empty and the space seemed much too large for this event.


Nice venue Need some AC units as very hot Clean and tidy


Lovely venue but very hot! Generally clean and plenty of places to sit
