  • Junipalooza London 2018

    Junipalooza London 2018 at Tobacco Docks on Saturday, 9th and Sunday, 10th June 2018.

    We are delighted to be bringing Bertha to London for Junipalooza this year.

    The annual Gin festival is a very much one of a kind; not only are all of the makers behind each gin there to talk you through their products in person, but every single gin is free to sample and comes with the option to drink neat or with tonic.

    Over 60 gin brands will be in attendance, with well over 100 gins on offer between them. Once through the door, you’ll be handed a tasting glass and off you go to taste you way through the next four hours. Your ticket entitles you to as many samples as you’d like to try, as well as access to a range of talks and masterclasses from industry experts, a great cocktail bar and a room full of gin geeks having the best time since… well, last year’s stellar event.
