Martin Duffy, founder, Juniper Festival commented:
“We’ve had three great years in Edinburgh and have been keen to take the Juniper Festival to Glasgow so it’s great to see this ambition realised in 2016. We’ve got a fantastic selection of gins coming along to provide visitors with an education as well as the chance to try them.

“Since 2012 over fifty new gin distilleries have launched across the UK, with seventy per cent of all gin produced in Britain coming from Scotland, and so the industry really is on the rise both north and south of the border. Each distillery uses its own unique blend of botanicals – no two are the same which I love. We will have gins represented at the event from all over the UK including Glasgow of course, and so there will be a huge range for visitors to sample and explore, and they will also have the chance to attend masterclasses with a number of these celebrated brands so it’s set to be a great day for anyone who enjoys gin or trying something new.”
