With several stylish gin bars in the city to choose from, Newcastle certainly loves its gin, so it's no surprise that the spirit is now celebrated with its very own annual festival. Every summer since 2014, the Gin Festival comes to the historic CastleGate on the Quayside to bring together Geordie gin fans from near and far. It only grows more popular (and exciting) each year.
The Gin Festival Newcastle weekend showcases more than 100 gins from across the globe, though we wouldn't recommend trying them all in one session! These include brand new and innovative gins from emerging independent gin producers, and you may just find your new favourite. Some gins will be exclusive to the Gin Festival too, so don't miss your chance to take a sip.
Every visitor to the Gin Festival receives their very own souvenir glass as well as a brochure with details of every single gin on offer - perfect for helping you to choose which one you'll sample first. There's always great entertainment throughout the weekend too, including live music and talks from gin experts, plus plenty of food to keep you going.
To make your Gin Festival Newcastle experience easy, relaxed and fun, the bars accept tokens which you can purchase when you arrive - so you'll spend less time in queues, and more time soaking up the atmosphere. The Gin Festival is always a sell-out event so get your tickets early, and why not make a day of it by heading to one of Newcastle's best gin bars or cocktail bars afterwards?
