The Irish Gin & Tonic Fest is a Nationwide Festival which is running from June 20th – 25th in many licensed bars, restaurants or hotels in Ireland. Those involved are showcasing one of seven different Irish gins served with a tonic of their choice for the week of the festival.

All participating venues’ details have been listed on the official site and divided up by the county. As soon as the festival starts, the public will be asked to vote for their favourite Irish Gin & Tonic of the festival by using the #IrishGnT on Twitter or by telling Great Irish Beverages on their Facebook page.

Irish Gin & Tonic Fest is made possible with the kind assistance of Fáilte Ireland and the amazing Irish gin brands which the festival is working with.
