Newcastle Gin Festival – Giveaway!

June 2, 2015 in Festivals and Events 2

I’m so excited about this blog post, it’s my first ever blog giveaway and it’s a real belter!

I’ve teamed up with the makers of Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin, Greenall’s The Original London Dry Gin, BLOOM Gin and Berkeley Square London Dry Gin to give you the chance to win a pair of tickets to the Newcastle Gin Festival (which FYI is SOLD OUT!) Not only that, but there’ll also be a complimentary bottle of Opihr Oriental Spiced waiting for you at the Opihr stand when you arrive!

The 3rd Newcastle Gin Festival will return to The CastleGate, a spacious urban venue on Melbourne Street for three days in June. The tickets I have up for grabs are for the evening session, 6pm-11pm on Saturday the 13th June.

You’ll get the chance to try many new and exciting products, there’ll be over 80 of the UK’s finest gins on offer! A token system  will be in place, each one will cost for a fiver and can be exchanged for any gin (a full measure not a measly sample) and the mixer and garnish of your choice.

There’ll also be masterclasses with industry experts, food stalls and fantastic live music to create the perfect atmosphere. Whether you’re a gin connoisseur or a casual enthusiast I’m sure you’ll have a great night!



Plus don’t forget, my lucky winner will also get a take home a bottle of Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin, a unique style of London Dry Gin distilled with botanicals selected from the Ancient Spice Route, with spicy cubeb berries from Indonesia, black pepper from India and coriander from Morocco. How delicious does that sound?

To be in with a chance of winning just answer the following question and leave your details below by 11pm on Monday 9th June:

Name the botanicals in Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin.

a) Spiced cubeb berries, black pepper and coriander

b) Pepper and Salt
