The past three festivals were held solely in Singapore and brought in some of the best gins, such as Hendrick’s Gin and Bombay Sapphire, as well as the region’s best bartenders from award-winning bars like Tippling Club and Regent Hotel’s Manhattan. Activities such as masterclasses, pop ups, gin rambles and tastings, distillery visit live streams, the Gin Lane closing parties and the Best Gin & Tonic competition will be held in each city.
