That’s right, the East Imperial Gin Jubilee – which is organised by beverage curators Proof & Company – will be heading back to Singapore for its 4th edition from 13 to 19 November 2016, and gin lovers are in for a massive treat.
But before that, the drinks festival will kick off in four other cities from around the region, starting with Kualur Lumpur from 18 to 20 August, Hong Kong from 30 August to 3 September, Phnom Penh from 6 to 8 October, and Bangkok from 27 to 29 October, before ending off in Singapore.
Information is currently scant about what is going to happen when it’s Singapore’s turn to host the festival, but the East Imperial Gin Jubilee usually organises master classes, tastings, parties and pop-ups, so it’s safe to say that this year’s events will probably be around the same.
One thing’s for certain though, is that this edition of the East Imperial Gin Jubilee will see 80 bars from the participating countries challenge each other for the title of Asia’s best G&T maker, and we’re pretty confident that our local boys have what it takes to be crowned champions.
That being said, with big brands like Hendrick’s, Monkey 47, Death’s Door and Sipsmith all involved, plus the region’s best bars and bartenders, there’s no better place to celebrate gin culture than to head down to the East Imperial Gin Jubilee.
The East Imperial Gin Jubilee is happening from 13 to 19 November 2016. Visit their website at ginjubilee.com.
