The Festival

How it works?

So you've arrived at the festival, what happens next? Have your ticket at the ready either on your smart phone (not printed save the planet) or printed and our wonderful team will scan you in.

You'll get a wristband and ushered in to get a glass where you will be greeted by your host. If you have any questions throughout the festival this is the person to find, if it's something good or bad please come speak to us and don’t be a key board warrior come and speak to us, we don’t bite! So your host has said hello and talked you through a very brief festival low down, so you get your glass and your Scottish Gin Bible. These are both yours to keep. Please read as much, or as little as you'd like. The glass, which is now yours please bring this to the bar each time, our team will wash it and help find the next gin of your choice.

So you have your glass and a gin bible it's time to head to the bar! We'll have 8 different bars at the festival which are split up into different regions of Scotland. So either take some time and do a bit of light reading to whet the taste buds or head straight for a section and one of our lovely team will be there to help you out!

Food

We've teamed up with Tobacco Dock Food who create London’s tastiest food offering. Created in-house at Tobacco Dock and staffed by leading food and drinks professionals.

For their food offering, we have brought together a brigade of chefs with experience that spans Michelin-starred restaurants and the coolest street food. Locally sourced, seasonal menus are all supported by
 great service. Tobacco Dock Food is set up to deliver the highest quality at the best value.

From street food to fine dining, from canapés to bowl food, – Tobacco Dock will be creating some fantastic Scottish food dishes in line with our gin regions of Scotland.

Music

No festival is complete without a bit of music to complete the atmosphere, while you are enjoying our range of Scottish gins. We'll have various acts dotted around the Tobacco Dock to make your time at the festival even more enjoyable.

Cashless!

Now how do I buy the gin I hear you cry?!?!?!? It's simple. Our bars are cashless, Hooray! Download the TicketCo Wallet app and add your gin credit before you arrive enabling you to miss out on the top-up queues on arrival. If you run out, it's super easy to top-up through the app and best of all it has a list of what you are/have been drinking! ** If you don't wish to use the TicketCo Wallet app, don't worry we'll have top-up cards at the festival which can be used. **Unsure how it all works? Don't worry it's all going to be covered in the gin bible!
