Hosting a gin festival is the latest trend following the craft gin revolution over recent years.
It seems like every town and its dog has hosted an incredible gin festival and now Cardiff is getting another amazing chance to taste gins from around the world – right here at The Exchange Hotel.
With big name brands, live entertainment and a setting of one of the most beautiful buildings in Cardiff, it’s going to be a weekend to remember.
Here’s everything you need to know about all two days of exciting gin activities.
When Will the Gin Festival Take Place?
The exciting event will be taking place on the third weekend in November, so there’s plenty of time to get your tickets!
Kicking off on Friday 17th November, the Gin Festival promises plenty of tasty drinks and an evening to remember.
Join us from 6.30pm on the Friday for the debut evening session. There’s no venue quite like The Exchange Hotel to sit back and sup on distinguished gin.
The next day promises two sessions to choose from, you can start early in the afternoon from 1.30pm until 4.30pm or venture to Cardiff Bay a little later in the evening for a 6.30pm evening session launch.
What Gins Are Available?
The Exchange Hotel in Cardiff has managed to entice loads of big name brands and craft novices to come and showcase their creations in one of the most beautiful buildings in Cardiff.
Who wouldn’t want the chance to show the people and visitors of Cardiff what their gin is made of in the stunning surroundings of the former Coal Exchange?
Choose to sup on Welsh favourite Penderyn Gin, venture into artisan territory with Tappers Gin or guzzle on the big dogs with Bombay Sapphire and Gordon’s. Whether you want to try something new or want a classic in a beautiful setting, you must come to The Exchange Hotel’s Gin Festival for an unforgettable gin experience.
The drinks on offer at the gin festival are purchased on a token system for a true festival feel. You can buy your tokens at the bar for £5 each which will cover a gin of your choice and the recommended mixer.
What Else is on Offer for the Day?
If plenty of gin and a beautiful building isn’t quite enough for you, there’s also live entertainment throughout the sessions.
The exciting performers are being kept a secret before the big day, but be prepared for some of the best entertainment in Cardiff in an intimate setting.
There’s even a food cooking display from The Exchange Hotel’s talented, in-house, local chefs. The demonstration will be available for purchase in advance or on the day and will be unmissable. The skills and expertise these chefs have is remarkable and you may even learn a thing or two for yourself!
