The first Fitch & Leedes Gin & Tonic Festival will hit Cape Town on Saturday 6 October at the Lookout in the V&A Waterfront.
This festival brings a wide selection of local craft gins and premium international brands to one location. The venue will come alive with artisanal food stalls serving a variety of gourmet street food, live music from local artists and top-notch G&Ts prepared by expert mixologists.
As title sponsor of the festival, Fitch & Leedes prides itself as the understudy to greatness, accentuating the botanical character and subtle notes in handcrafted gins. Fitch & Leedes will be supplying the tonics for all the G&T’s at the festival.
“Our partnership with the Gin and Tonic Festival has been such a wonderful experience in Durban that bringing it to Cape Town was a must. At Fitch & Leedes, it is our philosophy that the hard work and skill of the distiller should be amplified and celebrated. This is why it is great to see our mixers paired with all the signature gins on offer at the festival,” explains Brand Manager James Shaw.
The Fitch & Leedes range comprises nine classics: Indian Tonic, Pink Tonic and Craft Cola – all available in regular and sugar-free; Club Soda; Ginger Ale; Bitter Lemon and Bitter Lemon Lite; Peach Lemonade; Lemonade; and Spicy Ginger Beer.
Brought to the Mother City by local events companies, MRJ Events and Big Nite Out Productions, the festival promises to be one of the highlights on Cape Town’s social calendar.
