Bluewater’s First Gin Festival Coming Soon

This September, Bluewater will hold its first ever Gin Festival, in association with The Gin Lounge. Attendees will be able to sample a huge variety of gins and spirits plus take part in a host of masterclasses and workshops.


Running from Friday 27th September to Sunday 29th September, the exciting event is perfect for those looking to immerse themselves in the world of gin and find out more about some of the UK’s top distilleries, including Griffiths Brothers, Hinch Distillery, Silent Pool, Macmyra, Gin & Jones, and local Kent distillers, Copper Rivet.


Award-winning mixologists will be serving delicious cocktails from two exclusive bars, whilst experts from the country’s best gin makers will be on hand to lead masterclasses and talk through the intricacies of distilling.

Guests can also learn how to make classic drinks through interactive workshops and visit The Gin Lounge Shop to pick up bottles and gifts on the way home.


Even those who are not fans of gin will enjoy the festival, as a variety of other artisan spirits will be available, along with premium mixers courtesy of Double Dutch.


Tickets can be purchased at, and will entitle guests to a free G&T on entry, a Gin Festival booklet and even a commemorative Glencairn Crystal gin and tonic glass to take home.
