Running from Sept 6-12, Sinagpore’s top celebration of all things juni-perfect, East Imperial Gin Jubilee, will gather 25 bartenders across 25 bars to compete with over 15 different gin brands in the biggest Gin & Tonic celebration the world over.
The format is simple, each bartender will present an innovative take on the simple Gin and Tonic. Consumers and fellow imbibers will then vote through social media through the hash tags #Eastimperial #GinJubilee2015 #[barname] as well as the unique hashtag #RPC – Requesting the Pleasure of your Company.
Only in its third year – the East Imperial Gin Jubilee is recognised as the best event to learn all things about Gin and Tonics and for many consumers a great first look into how versatile the serve can be. For those in the industry, the event is also a time to widely showcase the city’s hospitality community, which has been gaining serious recognition worldwide.
The event takes place across the top bars in Singapore with the winner securing bragging rights and the Gin Jubilee tankard for the year.
The Jubilee will culminate with a Gin Lane street party with 5 pop ups from the best bars and Gin brands in town.
“This year’s Gin Jubilee will be bigger, bolder and better. We have created this Jubilee to give participants the ultimate G&T experience with Master classes with some of the best bartenders globally, Gin Lane walks with some of the best craft gin brands you know, gin pairing dining experiences celebrating all things Juniper and special tasting sessions and gin flights. Not to mention some very special events we are working on to delight and surprise all imbibers,” forewarns Singapore-based East Imperial who organise the week-long fest.
To celebrate Singapore’s SG50 Gold Jubilee, East Imperial will also be creating special edition roof top Gin Jubilee G&Ts at the top roof bars in the city – Sky on 57, ME@OUE and Catalunya.
