- There will be more than 100 types of gins on show at Nottingham’s gin festival this weekend.
On arrival visitors will be handed a Gin Festival glass and a brochure, with information on the gins to sample and about each company.
Throughout the event there will also be live music entertainment and talks from gin industry experts.
We absolutely love gin, so we started these events because we thought other people would want the same as us.
We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive reception and it’s been fantastic to see so many people rediscover this amazing drink.
