A host of new and independent tonic and gin brands will be showcased this weekend.

The Ginpourium at Surrey’s Eat! Food Festival will see six independent gin brands and bartenders take part in a two-day contest to create the most interesting and tasty cocktail.

The ‘Gin fight’ contenders include Boxer Gin, London gin brand currently in the process of launching new sustainable packaging to save on bottle wastage. 

It will also see spice extract producer Holy Lama pair their spice drops with Edinburgh Gin, to create a cocktail inspired by Indian spices.

Attendees will be asked to vote for their favourite concoction.

Other stalls at the festival include Drunken Dairy, vending a gin & tonic sorbet; Collagin, a gin made with pure collagen which claims to keep drinkers looking young, and distillery Gorilla Spirits which will be selling new-to-market Silverback Gin.

The Ginpourium is a two-day celebration of gin taking place in Reigate, Surrey from July 22-23.
