We have just completed a 1,384km drive to Berlin and back to serve some amazing Driftwood Gins to an unsuspecting German audience. Berlin Gin Festival was on this weekend! The weather was hot and the Germans were thirsty!
It was the first Festival that we had done, so we were a little unsure as to what to expect. We rocked up to the Malzfabrik Schöneberg
with a van loaded with gin and hoped for the best. We were not disappointed. Tim was in awe because we were next to Roku and Sipsmith gin stand. Talk about David and Goliath. Roku has to be one of the favourite all time gins and their stand was amazing. Their barman was cool and their kit gleamed. But after a quick trip to Ikea, a couple of appleboxes stacked in an artful way, I don’t think that Driftwood let itself down. As the guy from the tonic stand said… If your gin isn’t up to standard, then just go home! But of course ours is! So we stayed and we served over 400 samples of gin in 6 hours!
Pretty good for the first festival!
