The Great Tonic Taste Off (Sydney)

Great Tonic Taste Off

We're excited to be co-hosting the Sydney leg of the Great Tonic Taste Off with the Gin Queen and Citadelle Gin. 

With the rise of gin production, so too have a variety of tonic waters burst onto the market. As one of the most iconic drinks of all time, the Gin and Tonic is all about a happy marriage of the spirit and the mixer. If you thought all tonics were the same, think again! Take part in the Great Tonic Taste Off and you will be pleasantly surprised. The Gin Queen and Citadelle are travelling around Australia to host a taste off in the major capital cities - the aim? Find Australia's favourite tonic. In each session, guests will be blind tasting a line up of tonics and scoring them. The scores are added up and a victor announced. Will there be a tonic that triumphs across all major cities in Australia?

So come along to these sessions and have your say! On arrival, you’ll be greeted with a tasty Citadelle gin cocktail to sip on while the Gin Queen herself talks you through the history of the G&T before you commence blind-tasting six different tonics. Mitch Wilson from Maison Ferrand will then showcase Citadelle gin before a final round of blind-tasting the tonics, this time with a small measure of gin.

The scores will be added up and announced while you enjoy a final G&T.
