What is the Gin Jubilee?

East Imperial Gin Jubilee is Asia's premier gin festival. This annual celebration of all things gin brings together some of the world’s finest gins, the region’s best bars and bartenders, and thousands of gin novices and aficionados. The culmination of the East Imperial Gin Jubilee is the crowning of one bar and bartender with the Silver Tankard for each city’s “Best Gin & Tonic”.

2017 - The 5th Edition

For the first time ever, East Imperial Gin Jubilee 2017 will spread gin culture beyond Asia and into the Pacific, with individual jubilees planned in Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Phnom Penh, Bangkok, Singapore and now Auckland. More than 120 of the region’s best bars will compete for a trip to the grand jubilee finale in Singapore and the ultimate crown of "Best Gin & Tonic."
