The first-ever Gin Festival in the South side at Pollokshields Burgh Hall, draws ever nearer.

Taking place on Saturday, March 3, the GinFall Festival will bring together a large variety of fantastic gins from Scotland and further afield.

Created by the team behind Social and Cocktail Events, Scotland`s most popular drink events company, GinFall Festival will bring a mix of Gin, Cocktails, Food & Music to Pollokshields Burgh Hall – offering the perfect day out for all gin lovers.

GinFall Festival will bring together a large variety of fantastic gins from Scotland and further afield. All the gin distilleries will be offering samples for attendees to enjoy on the day, plus there will also be Scottish Gin masterclasses, fantastic music and a premium cocktail bar – mixing up fabulous gin cocktails and perfect serves.

The Festival will be in 2 sessions:

Session 1: 12–4pm

Session 2: 5-9pm

The event will also feature live music from local performers, food from local restaurants and a gin cocktail bar serving up some great gin cocktail creations.

GinFall organiser John McIver, said: “Having researched the current “gin festival” landscape in Scotland, which has grown significantly over the last 12 months, we saw an opportunity to create a more boutique style gin show, with a blend of quality gins, local food and music, gin masterclasses and premium gin cocktails, created by our own Social and Cocktail mixologists.

“We decided to move out of the city centre a little as we understand that it is not always ideal for people to have to make their way into the city centre for a show at the weekend. The Social and Cocktail team are all based in the southside of Glasgow, so we have a good deal of local knowledge and believe there is a huge demand for this type of event.

“After much searching, we came across Pollokshields Burgh Hall and fell in love with the place – the very definition of a hidden gem, and the perfect venue for what we are trying to create.

We have a large variety of gins will be exhibiting at the show, including Caorunn, Arbikie, Makar, Colonsay, Shetland Reel, Silent Pool, Darnely`s View, Gin Mare, Lussa, Granite North, Gilt and Brockmans, to name but a few. It should be a fantastic day.”
