Craft & Co's Summer Gin Market there will be 9 market stalls of Aussie distillers on show, where you can
meet some of the makers in person and find out all about their
products. White Hat expects a sell-out event, so so we
suggest that if you are interested you secure a spot quickly.
As this is a sit-down event, the distillers will be moving table to table
showcasing their products - speed-dating style. Just sit back, relax, and
let the gin come to you!
At the conclusion of the session, market-goers are invited to stand up,
mingle with the distillers and visit their bottle shop, where there will be
exclusive specials and products not found elsewhere.
Tickets are $25pp to $40pp and include admission to your chosen session,
free tastings and show bag
