The event takes place on November 1 and 2 at St Andrews Hall and is the largest of its kind in the UK and the organisers are bringing more than 60 different gins and 60 different rums to the table.

Almost as important is the mixer and Schweppes will be their official tonic partner with flavours including cucumber, salty lemon and muscovado.

While gin is the drink of the moment, this festival also points the direction of another new fashion, quality rum.

At the event, there will be an afternoon session from 12.30pm until 5pm, on Saturday only, followed by an evening session which takes place from 6.30pm to 11pm.
