The Irish Gin & Tonic Fest has just gone live for its third year. The 2018 event will feature 26 Irish gins that hail from every province in Ireland, made with a huge variety of both farmed and wild Irish ingredients, including potatoes, organic apples, Wexford strawberries and Dublin city rhubarb.

Since the launch of the festival in 2016, many of the venues that have been involved have seen huge uptakes in Irish gins. Stimulating excitement in the bars has trickled down to the customers, as both locals and tourists have never been more keen to seek out spirits that are distilled on Irish shores and with the wide variety now available – there’s an Irish gin for everyone!

Irish Gin & Tonic Fest will run from June 23rd – June 30th and any venue on the island of Ireland can get on board and register for free on the Great Irish Beverages website , selecting one of the amazing Irish gins they’d like to champion for the week of the festival. The venue will get its own page on the festival website and will be geographically listed so that everyone can see where they are. When the festival starts on June 23rd, the public will be able to vote for their favourite #IrishGnT on Twitter, Instagram or by posting on the Great Irish Beverages Facebook page.
