YES, this is happening. NO, you are not dreaming.
Adelaide now has its very own festival solely dedicated to GIN!
What’s a Gincident, you ask? It’s an event that happened due to one too many gins. While we all know someone who has experienced a few Gincidents themselves, have you ever been to a festival dedicated entirely to the humble juniper berry and its many, unique variations of consumption?
12pm – 9pm, Saturday 1st December
The Flour Shed, Hart’s Mill, Port Adelaide
$25-$35 (Includes take home cup & tastings at distillery stalls)

We are showcasing the best Gin in SA and Australia!
South Australia is the “Festival State” and the “Gin State”, so what better way to celebrate such titles than to have a Gin Festival? Inside the Flour Shed, the main bar – “Ginsational” – will be run by one of Adelaide’s favourite gin dens, The Howling Owl, making gin cocktails with some of the finest Australian Gins. Festival goers will also be able to try free samples from around 20 different gin distillers and enjoy the beauty of the garnish bar, hosted by Fever Tree tonic and Adelaide bar, Haines & Co. Outside there will be a selection of amazing local food vendors, to let you dine with friends under the leafy canopy of Mundy Street. Gincident will kickstart you into the spirit of Christmas (get it?!) with festive craft stalls and Christmas-Special Gin batches, so you can get a head start on your shopping!
Some of the Gintastic companies sharing their Gin at the Festival will include, Prohibition Liquor Co., Archie Rose, Four Pillars, Adelaide Hills Distillery, McHenry, Cape Byron, Never Never, Kangaroo Island Gin, Animus Distillery, Luxe Wine + Spirits, Martin Distillation Co., Reed & Co. and 36 Short.
Can I enjoy my Gin with some live music?
You certainly can! There will be live entertainment throughout the event.
Will there be food?
Yes indeed! Some of the best food vans in Adelaide, no less. Delicious food to enjoy with amazing Gin.
Develop that refined love of Gin at the Masterclass sessions with local distillers & do some Gin Christmas gift shopping.
Any Excuse…to bring your friends together this festive season!
In Gin we trust.
