Dear Gin Friends,
First we want to say thank you for the support and love you have shown the The Gin To My Tonic.
As two best-friends with a passion for gin, we’ve worked extremely hard over the last-12 months to deliver quality gin events across the UK. From our immersive meet-the-maker shows, to our party atmosphere festivals, to our curated tasting events, each has been designed with you the gin lover in mind. It’s been an absolute pleasure meeting you all on the road, seeing your excitement for the nation’s favourite spirit, and watching as you welcome craft distilleries old and new into your homes.
Over recent weeks COVID-19 has placed a black cloud over all our lives. We want to continue to spread the gin love, but we are also aware that we have a moral responsibility to our customers, exhibitors and staff. With this in mind we are reviewing events and can confirm the following:
– All events from now until end of May have been postponed. This includes Nottingham, Bournemouth, Birmingham, Swindon, London, Manchester & Brighton. All ticket holders have been notified of the new dates via e-mail and through social media.
– June events remain unaffected at this time, however we continue to monitor government guidance and review the situation regularly.
In the event of any additional changes to our schedule these events will be postponed rather than cancelled, with tickets automatically transferred to the new 2020 date. We are also releasing 2021 dates for these locations so the option to transfer to 2021 is also available. Alternatively, you are welcome to change locations entirely and opt for a new location later in the year with us. Or, if you are undecided on what to do, then we are happy to offer you a gift voucher/credit to redeem at any of our events when the time is right. Your support does not go unnoticed.
We ask for your kindness and understanding at this time. As a small business this is an unprecedented situation to have to navigate, but we also ask you to spare a thought for the craft distilleries that use our events as a way of getting their gin to market. The craft gin industry faces a challenging few months and we all have to pull together, stay strong, and ensure there is a large G&T ready at the end of it. God knows we are all going to need it!
Stay safe, keep well and we will see you all very soon.
Em & Paul, Co-Founders, The Gin To My Tonic
