IOL Lifestyle is giving away two sets of double tickets to the Friday edition of the Canal Walk Gin Festival. 

The first sip of spring will be on offer at the first Canal  Walk Gin Fest, taking place from September 6- 7. All the top gin brands will be under one roof, with live entertainment from  local talent and DJs. 

The festival is designed to provide a fun atmosphere where gin enthusiasts will be  given the opportunity to sample old favourites, discover new varieties and mix with other like- minded gin aficionados and enthusiasts.

Vanessa Herbst, marketing manager at Canal Walk Shopping Centre said : “We are excited to host the first  gin festival in a shopping centre, and we think it’s the perfect way to welcome spring, we hope  our visitors do too.”

There has been a steady rise in the interest in gin over the past few years with numerous  local infusions and craft blends finding their way to discerning palates. Add to that the myriad  ways in which to augment this drink – from a growing variety of tonics, to apple,  pineapple, berries and more – Centre Court at Canal Walk will be the ideal place to be this  September.

With experienced ginologists on hand to answer questions and share their  knowledge, it’s also perfect for first time gin-drinkers to get acquainted with what the rest  knows – let the spring beGIN.
