Gin has become super popular in Denmark in recent years and is now a staple at some of Copenhagen’s trendiest bars. In fact, there’s so much interest in the juniper-based liquor that it now has its very own festival.

People attending the gin festival at Lokomotivværkstedet near trendy Vesterbro will be able to taste more than a hundred different varieties of gin and dozens of different tonics created by producers and distilleries from England, Scotland and further afield.

Some of the big names on show at the festival include Monkey 47, Hendrick’s, Malfy and Berkeley Square. Handmade gins, produced in smaller quantities than the more famous products, are also on offer.

Entry to the event includes a free tasting glass (samples can be tasted for free) and gin and tonics or cocktails can be bought for around 50 DKK inside the festival.

You can purchase tickets for either a two-and-a-half hour or three-hour visit to the festival. For full details on exhibitors and entry times, check out the festival’s website.
