The Craft Spirit Carnival - Aberdeen’s Biggest Craft Spirit Festival complete with gin, rum, vodka, cocktails and more – lands at Aberdeen’s P&J Live on August 25 and 26, presenting the ultimate craft spirit showcase.

Watch with wonder and amazement as up to 50 craft distillers unite under one roof, each with their own individual stalls, and invite ticketholders to enjoy unlimited tasting samples from each as they work the room on the hunt to find a new favourite.

Claire-Lena Miller-Davis, Exhibition Sales Manager at P&J Live, said: “As well as soaking up fabulously produced craft spirits, learn about the individual brands and their backstories, distillation knowledge and know-how in order to enrich your craft spirit adventure. From the classically produced, to the fruity, and frankly weird and wonderful, no stone will be left unturned.

The Craft Spirit Carnival is an extension of The Gin To My Tonic Show, which is running on the same dates at P&J Live.

One ticket for either show will be valid as entry to both shows.

Exhibitors include: BrewDog Distilling, Pilgrim’s Gin, Reaper’s Rum, Giants Basalt Rock Gin, Twice Buried Rum, Orkney Spirit Company, GHQ Spirits, Dunnet Bay Distillers, Inverclyde Gin, Angel Dare Cocktails, Spirit O’ Clyde, Fraiser Whisky Liqueur, Rascal Gin, Roehill Springs Distillery, Bareksten Botancial, Foghouse Gin, House of Boe, Lunun Gin, Zymurgorium Distillery, 1881 Gin Distillery, Locksley Distilling, Dundee Gin Company, Pussers Rum, Raven Spirits, Shipyard Gin, Faith & Sons Gin & Rum, North Point Distillery, The Gin, Rum & Vodka Bar, run by The Craft Spirit Carnival.

Beyond the huge selection of exhibiting craft distillers (one of the largest gatherings in the UK to be exact), ticketholders will be able to enjoy full size drinks and exclusive artisan cocktails from the distillers themselves, discover exclusive releases behind the range of bars, and participate in immersive workshops and masterclasses lead by industry experts.

The show organisers promise an epic day craft spirit filled day, unlike any other spirit festival in the country, with entertainment and surprises to boot!

Session times:Friday 25 from 6pm-10pm; Saturday 26 from 12pm – 4pm; from 6pm – 10pm.
