The fourth edition of the East Imperial Gin Jubilee will hit Singapore from Nov 20-26, bringing a heady dose of gin culture to town. Before then, the festival will tour four other cities in Asia, giving you a pretty good excuse for a weekend getaway.
Festivities kick off in Kuala Lumpur from Aug 18 to 20 followed by Hong Kong from Aug 30 to Sep 3, Phnom Penh from Oct 6 to 8 and Bangkok from Oct 27 to 29.
The highlight of this year’s event is the Asia’s Best Gin & Tonic competition which will see 80 bars from the participating cities competing for the title. The Jubilee calendar also includes masterclasses, tasting sessions, pop-ups, live stream distillery visits and the famed Gin Lane closing party. All the usual suspects in the world of fine gin will be involved including Hendrick’s, Bombay Sapphire, Monkey 47, Death’s Door and Sipsmith.
