Gray's Deli, the independent deli on Crow Road in Glasgow’s West End that is organising the event says it will be the first gin festival to be totally dedicated to Scotland's gin.

Running at the Trades Hall on Saturday 23rd September, the Scottish Gin Fest 2017 will host more than 40 Scottish gin companies who’ll be dishing out tasters of gin as well as offering bottles to take home.

There’ll also be masterclass sessions available with a premium ticket.

Chris Gallen, owner of Gray’s Deli said: “Scotland’s gin is world class and with an ever-changing landscape of gin companies, this is the perfect way for gin lovers to try new gins and re-discover old favourites.”

“Gray’s Deli is a proud stockist of a great range of Scottish gin, and the obvious extension to that is to hold an event to celebrate the amazing gin and tonic producers from every corner of Scotland.”

The one day session will run from 12pm-5pm with tickets priced at £15 available to buy from Wednesday 5th April 2017 at
