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-

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
