SA Gin Festival 2017

Don’t miss out on this year’s SA Gin Festival taking place at Riversands Farm Village in September.

It is said that back in 1585 English soldiers based in the Netherlands drank genever (gin) for its

calming effects before battle. This is believed to be the origin of the term

Dutch Courage.

Fast

forward to 2017 and the gin revolution is bigger than ev er with no exception to South Africa. Local

distillers are producing world class gins using indigenous botanicals (think Fynbos, Buchu and even

Rooibos). These brands have placed South Africa firmly on the international gin map and the world’s

taking notice.

On Saturday 30 September the inaugural

SA Gin Festival

will be hosted at the Riversands Farm

Village in Fourways, Johannesburg. This event will be a celebration of gin with more than 15 local gin

suppliers exhibiting. The event will give visitors an opportunity to sample a large variety of craft gins

while learning more about the gin making process from the distillers. The festival will also boast live

music and a variety of food stalls. So if you are interested in learning more about gin or simply want

to enjoy a relaxing day out with friends, the

SA Gin Festival

is not to be missed!
