UK’s Largest Gin & Rum Festival Returns to Lincoln!

The UK’s largest touring Gin & Rum festival will be making an appearance once again at the incredible Engine Shed on Saturday 17th June and it isn’t one to be missed! They have big ambition for 2023, which includes incorporating some new destinations into their plan of action, but doesn’t include rising their ticket prices! With the huge impact of Covid on the events industry, this small midlands-based drinks festival has fought through some turbulent times and it most likely won’t be the last difficulty they face. 

However, this isn’t stopping them push forward and give everything they can to their customers. The Gin & Rum team said “Though we’ve been touring since 2018, a couple of those years were tainted by Covid. Now we’re back on track with booking new dates instead of rescheduling them. We’ve had time to reflect and start to develop the festival even more, focusing on value for money and customer experience. The first thing we did was look at how we could give more to our customer and one thing stood out. A free drink. So, we’re doing it!” 

Previously when attending one of their events (£15 + booking fee), your ticket price already included entry, Gin and Rum guide, stainless steel metal straw, branded glass, live music, DJ, access to exclusive products and you can sample all the products available to purchase from the distillers exhibiting there. Now this will ALSO include your free drink and snack. 

The festival has partnered up with snack company LOVE CORN to bring a free snack to all their attendees in 2023. They noted “This is huge for us, we’re so excited to team up with such a fresh and exciting company. They’re completely unique and the team at LOVE CORN are great to work with. We’re sure they have a few more things up their sleeves.”

You’ll be spoilt for choice with over 120 different Gin & Rums to choose from. Choose your new favourite tipple, while having a boogey along to some live entertainment and their award-winning DJ. You’ll even get the chance to rub shoulders with some of their hand selected distillers and enjoy their samples. If you feel like it, why not purchase a bottle to take home?
