SOME of Tasmania’s finest gin producers are gearing up to showcase their famous drops next month at a gin tasting event to be held at Hobart’s Government House.
Representatives from Cambridge’s Forty Spotted Gin, Port Arthur’s McHenry Distillery and Pontville’s Shene Estate and Distillery are among those who will be serving their exclusive gin cocktails at the “Variety of Gins”, which will be raising money for Variety Tasmania.
Variety state manager Luke Doyle said the event was a celebration of some of Tasmania’s finest artisan producers.
“This event will be hosted by Tasmanian Governor Kate Warner and will showcase outstanding Tasmanian produce while raising funds for Tasmanian children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs,” he said.
“Each cocktail will be matched with locally crafted canapés served as guests meander through the historic gardens of Government House.”
Mr Doyle said the evening would wrap with a live fundraising auction.
A Variety of Gins will be held on Friday 17 February from 5.30-7.30pm.
Tickets are available to people aged 18 years and older and can be purchased by visiting www.stickytickets.com.au/47039
