Big Big Gin Festival

The Corn Exchange Edinburgh is having a massive party this October with the Big Gin Festival. With over 100 gins to choose from, this is an unmissable event for all gin fans. 

Scotland is home to 150 gin distilleries, so where better to enjoy these than in Scotland's capital? Expect live music, great food and a gin cocktail bar at this fabulous event. This is an opportunity to tantalise your sense from the world through touch, smell, taste, sights and sounds. Let your experience be-gin! 

What to expect at the Big Gin Festival 

Big Big Gin Festival Main

Gin lovers can enjoy Gin Tasting from leading makers and craft distilleries, and watch expert mixologists shake up a storm over at the Gin cocktail bar. Pair your drinks with some fabulous food, and browse a range of gin-inspired products and gin gifts to take home. There is also plenty to learn at the Gin Masterclass area where you can meet some of the most exciting gin brands from Scotland.

On your arrival you will receive your very own exclusive keepsake 2020 Big Big Gin Festival Glass, your first Gin and Mixer free of charge, and access to the Meet The Makers section where there is unlimited free samples.

Bars are split into World, Scottish and Fruity Gins, and will operate on a token system. Tokens are £5.00 each with one token paying for a single measure of gin, garnish and premium mixer. You can pre-purchase your tokens here and of course purchase additional on the day.
