Annual Gin Festival held in Bloemfontein


The annual South African gin festival will be held in Bloemfontein for the first time on 31 August 2019. The event, called the Bloemfontein Gin Festival, will be hosted at the Ramblers Club and will be showcasing many South African gins.

SA gin distillers have been setting the bar high in the “Gin World”, using a variety of botanicals such as fynbos, buchu and even rooibos. These brands have placed South Africa on the international gin map, and the world is taking notice.

The event will not only include a showcasing of local gin distillers, but there will also be amazing food trucks, live music and DJs. If you just want to relax and sip on your gin cocktail or if you want to dance the night away, the gin festival will be catering for everyone.

Hosted by the SA Gin Society, in association with Schwepps and OFM, the event will commence at 11:00 and continue until 20:00, enough time to indulge in the South African craft.

Tickets will be sold at R180 per person, which includes a free gin glass and three complimentary tasting tokens which you can use at a gin vendor of your choice. Tickets are available at
