Scotland’s biggest gin festival will return to Dundee for the second time next month to coincide with World Gin Day.

The Gin Fest, which pulled in more than 600 people last year, is expected to be bigger and better this time round with new gins making an appearance on the day.

The event will be held at the Bonar Hall on June 9.

Organiser Carrie Shannon said: “It’s not just your basic gin and tonic any more.

“There are loads of different flavours so people who don’t think they like gin will find there is one they enjoy.”

Watch out for Boë Violet Gin!

She added: “Last year’s event in Dundee was a success so we hope that on the back of that, people will tell their friends about it and we will have an even bigger and better event.”

Some of the Scottish gins featured at the festival include Darnley’s from Kingsbarns, The Gin Bothy from Kirriemuir and Boe Gin from Stirling.

Meanwhile, a beer and cider event, Dundee Brew Fest, will be held at the Queen’s Hotel on Friday, May 4 from 5pm.

The Gin Fest 2018 is set for 9 June. Tickets are available from The Gin Fest website
