“Beloved, we join hands here to pray for gin. An aridity defiles us. Our innards thirst for the juice of Juniper…” – Wallace Thurman, ‘Infants of the Spring’.
It’s in this spirit we invite you to an extravagGINza more bespoke than a nine-wheeled bicycle, craftier than a pair of loom-spun underpants, more festive than a jester in a cellophane g-string, and headed straight for the 012 in Pretoria. It’s Jozi’s epic craft gin festival, GINAPALOOZA! The coolest salute to the juniper since the beGINning of time, where all distinguished distillers of divinely fine liquor, and devout devotees of the G and the T, meet at a swilling celebration in the company of quietude’s sweet elixir.
Bring your friends and your thirst, your sunglasses and purse, to experience this vast array of botanically fantastical, local craft gins that are available on the day. Ginapalooza is not to be missed by ginthusiasts of this endearing and delightful drink, rapidly becoming a ginstitution among today’s thirsty society. Weaving sweetly between the clinking of ice cubes and elegantly inquisitive sipping of fine Gins, there’ll be delectable nibbles on offer to fill your hunger, as well as some of the country’s finest merchants of musical bliss, sending out their ginfectious melodies throughout the day. All this, and more whilst you bathe beneath the warm Spring sunlight, sipping ice-cold cocktails, in a day made for where the Jasmine and Juniper meet! So… If you’re as Malfy as a Beefeater in Cruxland, sporting a dry, Gordon Bombay jacket, on the search for Sapphires with a foxy Ginologist named, Whitney Neill, then stop Bulldogging around and get your Tanqueray’s down to another fabulous Ginapalooza, for the jolliest jol since the last one!
