Party with your inner sailor at Australia’s original gin festival, Juniperlooza

Melbourne’s original and best gin party Juniperlooza, will return at The Boatbuilders Yard on South Wharf, a location infused with Melbourne’s maritime history.

Moored in the depths of gin’s past is a tale of testament, taste and quality. Sixteenth-century sailors were often paid for their labor with rations of alcohol. With the intent to ensure their method of payment was pure, they ‘proved’ the beverage’s worth by creating a gun powder and gin concoction that was then set alight. The bigger the bang the better the beverage.
