It’s been a whirlwind few weeks for Junipalooza Melbourne! We’ve been forced to move to a new venue after the former one looked set to tumble into the sea, but we’ve found ourselves a new home just down the road (and set back a wee bit back from the water this time), and we’re plotting our best show yet.

We’re starting the juniper celebrations early this year, hosting a pre-palooza Gin dinner on the Thursday night. What better way to get the party started than with great food, drinks and company?!

The idea is simple: you’ll enjoy four courses expertly matched to a gin cocktail, made with a gin from four carefully selected Junipalooza distilleries. This is a night of education, too, so you’ll also be invited to taste the spirits on their own. Tasty, interesting and different, but there’s more…

Each of the featured distillers will also be in attendance at the meal. They’ll be seated amongst guests, so you’ll get a good chance to ask them whatever questions spring to mind as you enjoy your meals. They’ll be leading the tasting of their own spirits, too, sharing their stories and guiding you through their gin’s flavours. You’ll meet the maker over food, try their wares, see how it pairs with dishes and learn how it’s accentuated by the combination of the two.

This year the Gin Dinner will take place at Cumulus Inc on Thursday 24th October from 18:30-22:00,

Taking part are Ki No Bi, Hayman’s, Seppeltsfield Road and Brogan’s Way. We’ve had a good chat with all of them about what they’re planning and let’s just say this: you’re in for a treat!

Tickets are $155 per person and include a drink on arrival, four courses with the matching cocktails and a ticket to the Junipalooza Melbourne session of your choosing.

We’re keeping it nice and cosy, with just 50 guests, so if you want to ensure your place book well in advance!

Don’t forget - Please inform us if you have any dietary requirements when booking the tickets, as well as the desired Juniplaooza session that you’d like to attend
