The Cornish Gin and Drinks Festival at The Alverton

To gin or not to gin? Silly question really! A festival of all your favourite gins and drinks is coming to The Alverton on Saturday 24th October.


Lover of gin? Us too!

We've got just the thing to get your gin fix. Join The Alverton for our annual Cornish Gin and Drinks Festival sponsored by Franklin & Sons and Agner Arber on Saturday 24th October. From midday until late, expect to meet the makers and sample the very best in Cornish drinks. Get your tickets here.



What to expect

On the day, arrive to the first drink on us sponsored by Agnes Arber gin and Franklin & Sons tonic, before entering The Great Hall to meet the suppliers. Our suppliers are with us from 12pm-7pm, so make sure you arrive before then.

Venture over to The Oak and try oodles of samples, where live demos, talks and masterclasses from our gin distilleries will be held. Here you'll be able to pick up handy hints and tips to create your own top-notch tipples at home! 

Lounge around sipping delicate gin cocktails, share a tasting board of home-made nibbles with your friends, then dance the night away to your favourite tunes. Festival-goers can expect a whole host of entertainment, including performances from local singer songwriters including Rue, Mog Jones and Ash Harding, as well as the ever so popular Falmouth Soul Sensation! 

Although our main focus will be on gin, there will also be a vast range of other spirits available including local rums, vodkas and craft liqueurs.



Your ticket includes:

An Agnes Arber G&T on arrival, samples from all of our distilleries, access to our masterclasses, a printed gin guide and a keepsake branded gin glass to hold all your favourite future tipples. Get your tickets via our Eventbrite page here.
