Launched in 2012 by husband and wife team Jym and Marie Harris; has been a leader in the craft gin revolution, helping Brits to rediscover the pleasures of a great gin and tonic by introducing them to a wide variety of delicious gins from all over the world. now has festivals at more than 30 different UK locations, each offering the chance to try over 100 different gins.’s website offers even more variety, letting gin fans choose from an ever growing selection of gins (currently more than 200).

Gin Festival was launched in 2012 by Jym and Marie Harris. Passionate gin fans, they were frustrated by the lack of any events that demonstrated the range and quality of the burgeoning micro-distillery scene in the UK. So they decided to make their own. They set out to make the kind of event that they would love to attend, one that combines a chance to drink an array of new and small batch gins with great music and friendly gin geekery.

That first event in Leeds, West Yorkshire had only 150 people. Gin Festival London 2016 will serve over 7500.

This year will also see the launch of GinFestival’s own exclusive gin, “Single Estate Cornish Tea Gin,“ made in association with Tarquins Gin and available only at events.
