Gin in June for Haslemere. As the gin renaissance continues to prosper, the increasingly popular juniper-berried festival reaches the most southerly town in Surrey.
Haslemere is very proud to be hosting its first ever Gin Festival this June, thanks to Visit Haslemere (formerly the Haslemere Visitor Information Centre) and Haslemere Museum.
Antoinette Francis, from Visit Haslemere, says: “With several distillers so close to home, this is a perfect opportunity for Haslemere to celebrate its local gins with local people. The Haslemere Gin Festival will be introducing a wide variety of delicious gins from the area to help you, if you haven’t already, rediscover the pleasure of a great gin and tonic!”
The Festival will take place on the evening of Saturday 23 June 2018 in the beautiful setting of Haslemere Museum. Gin enthusiasts will have the opportunity to meet local distillers in person, chat about their gin and sample unusual and intriguing varieties, take part in informative masterclasses which will take place throughout the evening and hear talks from gin industry experts.
There will also be a selection of live music and some fantastic food. On arrival you will receive a gift bag with a free Haslemere Gin Festival balloon glass, a mixer drink and a festival brochure that will tell you all about the gins at the festival.
