The oldest Benelux Gin Festivalis blowing out 5 candles

For more than five years, the annual Gin Fair has been bringing together more than 70 (inter) national gin varieties and tonic manufacturers to treat all Gin & Tonic enthusiasts to the latest Gin facts and flavors. With their huge Gin offer and inspiring vision of Gin, the Gin Fair quickly grew into the largest Gin event of the entire Belenux.

The Felix Pakhuis will open its doors again on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May 2016 and organizer Frédéric Du Bois has something extra in store for its fifth edition.

In addition to tests, next weekend visitors will also have the opportunity to meet the creator, founder or distiller of the wide range of gins.

As if this is not enough, the Gin Fair selects two well-known Antwerp people with creative fingers who can embellish an exclusive gin-bottle packaging according to their own flavor for the anniversary celebration. None other than our most famous Antwerp city guides columnist Tanguy Ottomer and ATV presenter and blogger Zoë Van Gastel join forces with the Gin Fair 5.

Their creations can be admired at the Gin Fair 5 where they are offered for auction. The proceeds go entirely to a charity that was selected by the BVs.

Furthermore, there are several free seminars for fans that highlight the history of gin and highlight the different combinations of Gin & Food.

Last but certainly not least, let all visitors enjoy a perfectly served Gin & Tonic. The Gin Fair 5 this Saturday and Sunday can undoubtedly be the best!
