2018 Gin Jubilee – Over 35 Bars Compete

Gin, the big bad wolf of spirits is about to show you just how refined it can get. Singapore tonic brand East Imperial is back with it’s sixth edition of Gin Jubilee, featuring a jaw-dropping range of masterclasses and sipping events, with the city’s best gin brands.

Building on its mission to build appreciation for Gin & Tonics and the swiftly rising potential of bars in Singapore, the festival will see consumers through nine days of festivities, beginning at The Fullerton Hotel Post bar and East Garden on November 30, from 5 PM.

A breathtaking view is part of what’s offered at SKAI Bar, which is partaking in this year’s Gin Jubilee.

Singapore will be given the chance to experience East Imperial’s newest addition to its tonic range, the Royal Botanic Tonic. This is in addition to East Imperial’s diverse existing range, which includes elderflower, ruby red grapefruit, and quinine tonic waters.

Singapore will also be able to chart bar hops to sample G&Ts made by participating bars from this year, casting their votes on Instagram along the way. Their votes, combined with scores by a judging panel will help determine who makes the best Gin & Tonic in Singapore.

2018’s roster sees an impressive roster of over 20 gin brands, including traditional favourites like Four Pillars, Hendrick’s Gin, Roku Gin, Monkey 47 and The Botanist. The Gin Jubilee will also feature new interpretations that use Paper Lantern Gin, a gin produced in Singapore, made with an unconventional but tasteful range of oriental ingredients like Sichuan peppercorns.

Amping up on efforts to promote better drinking and drinks education, East Imperial Gin Jubilee’s Grand Finale will aim to best 2017’s record of 5,500-and-some Gin & Tonics served, partnering with Singapore eco-packing outfit TRIA to reduce waste.

Whether you like gin or not, East Imperial’s Gin Jubilee is bound to dispel a fair amount of what you know about the drink. Savour the experience at the Singapore Opening Party where drinks are priced at $22, with free entry. Winning cocktails, for the win!
