The year 2021 has been a special one -- hence also the festival will be unique. We are going digital, but the drinks will stay analogue, we ship them to your home and for tasting sessions will actually visit the makers of the drinks you are enjoying safely at home. So it's a bit like Eurovision meets country fair ;)
See you on Dec 9 at 1900 Tallinn time!Our Facebook page @KuressaareGin is updated a little bit more frequently than the webpage here.
In 2018 we organised the first Gin Festival in Estonia, on the magical Viking island of Saaremaa. We brought in the best gins from the region as well as tasty ice creams, and shared with the audience how the best gins and the most amazing cocktails are made.
In addition to local Estonian gins, from both the island and the mainland, many distillers and barmen travelled to this magical juniper island to trace gin's roots - bringing their best bottles with them, and tasting their colleagues' best results.
GinLahhentagge, Peninuki, Mohni, Tohi, Junimperium, Cesvaines Bruzis, Little Urban Distillery, Kyrö, Helsinki Distilling Company, Rivo Gin, Arctic Blue Gin, Boar Gin, Blossom Gin and An Dúlamán have attendedour first gin festivals.
