Juniper fest heads to the west

A Festival celebrating Scottish gin is set to make its debut in the west this month.

The Juniper Festival will take place at Glasgow’s SWG3 venue on Saturday September 10, after being held in Edinburgh’s Summerhall for the past three years.
Founded by Martin Duffy (pictured) of events and drinks specialist Solid Liquids, the Juniper Festival will showcase a range of Scottish gins, including Arbikie, Daffy’s, Eden Mill, Edinburgh Gin, Makar, Minus 33, Pickering’s and Strathearn. Tonic brands such as Fentimans, Fever Tree, Walter Gregor and Bon Accord will also be represented at the event, alongside craft products and food.
Duffy said: “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.”
