Big Big Gin Festival returns to Edinburgh in 2020

Good news for fans of the award-winning Big Big Gin Festival as it has announced its return to the Edinburgh Corn Exchange and once again it’s promising something refreshingly different with a brand new cocktail bar area as well as a host of new names on the listings to shake things up a little.

The new cocktail bar area will cater for cocktail-lovers, while more traditional gin fans can enjoy a classic G&T and even meet the makers from a wide range of gin brands, including Böe, Glaswegin, South Loch Gin, Whitetail Gin and Tobermory Gin.

The October edition of the Big Big Gin Festival saw the opening of a brand-new and exclusive VIP terrace area which was so popular with gin fans that it will return in April 2020. 

The 2-day event will also have a great range of masterclasses, workshops and demonstrations to extend your knowledge of all things gin. Plus, there’ll be face-painters, fabulous food, live music, and selfie walls and a photo booth to capture your memories.

Looking ahead to the fifth edition of the show, the owner of the Edinburgh Corn Exchange and creator of the Big Big Gin Festival, Paul DeMarco, commented; ‘The Big Big Gin Festival is now officially the best Scottish gin event of the year, so we understand visitor expectations will be high. Thankfully, we’ve got a whole host of fantastic names on board, from well-established big brands to exciting new emerging makers, and we’re confident there’ll be plenty to please the palate of even the most discerning gin drinker!’

The Big Big Gin Festival is set to be a sell-out success once again this year, with tickets to some sessions already completely sold out. To ensure you don’t miss out, book yours now at
