Best of Devon’s Next Adventure: Best Of Devon Gin Festival 2019
Best of Devon was conceptualised when four friends realised the incredible demand for food and drink-focused events in Devon. Two of the group grew up here in Devon and have over 10 years’ experience running student and family events around the UK. In 2018, the four friends decided to move to Exeter to focus on building a reputable brand amid the already competitive events market in Devon.
With all of the founders sharing a passion for food and drink, they loved the idea of combing the two with live entertainment to create a great atmosphere that people can enjoy both during the day and evening. Devon is also incredibly good at producing local companies that relish in their heritage and put their heart and soul into their products which is why they love to showcase this at their events.
Best of Devon’s next adventure is the Best of Devon Gin Festival 2019 which will be hosted at the beautiful riverside venue, Double Locks, on April 19th and 20th 2019. Best of Devon plan to turn the rustic pub into a world of gin appreciation.
The Best of Devon Gin Festival showcases a wide range of the best local gins from Devonian and Cornish distilleries to provide an afternoon of entertainment and culture. Attendees will go on a journey of gin discovery with workshops and talks from local experts as well as being able to sample and buy the best gins in the South West. The event will also showcase some of the best local Devon musical talent with acoustic acts and cover bands playing throughout the day.
The event tickets start at £12 and everyone who attends will receive a free gin & tonic, canapés, a Gin Encyclopedia (containing the full range of gins on offer and some exciting recipes), access to live presentations and entertainment as well as a goody bag.
The event has had an overwhelming response so far and already some of the biggest gin distilleries in Devon have come on board including Atlantic Spirit, Sidmouth Gin, Dartmouth Gin, 6 O’Clock, Quick Gin and EXE Gin. There will also be access to dozens more at the bar.
This will be a great event and a chance to really appreciate Devon’s culture and Best Of Devon have further plans to host other food and drink festivals in the county, such as The Best of Devon BBQ, Beer and Bourbon Festival and Chilli, Cheese and Chocolate Festival in 2019.
