The stand holder fee within Australia is $1300 – $1500 +GST. Auckland stands are available for $1900 +GST. Your stand fee covers your basic stand set up (trestle, ice bucket, ice tub) and we provide you with ice and Long Rays premium mixers to conduct your tastings. Power is available within the space however we don’t provide power to all stands. Water jugs are regularly topped up at all stands.

Examples of stand set-ups can be seen on our social media pages FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM. All ticket holders are provided with a tasting glass and tote bag for sampling. We don’t charge any additional costs or fees, and we leave bottle sales entirely in your hands. We don’t take a commission or cut from your sales. Licensing fees may apply in some states – so far this has only been applicable in Queensland. Stand holders are expected to offer free tastings to ticket holders. These sample pours are to be no more than 10mL. Share your story, showcase your gin range, and encourage ticket holders to purchase a bottle or two to take home with them!

Auckland Gin Festival

3, 4 & 5 FEBRUARY 2023

The unique venue: The Cloud, Queens Wharf.

The Auckland Gin Festival will be managed by the Australian Gin Distillers Association Inc, which is based in Sydney. The festival is offering stands to gin distillers from the Asia Pacific region in anticipation of a joyous meeting of countries and their love of the spirit GIN.

The celebrations will commence on Thursday evening at a dinner hosted by the Association for all distilleries taking part in the Festival. Two dinner tickets are included in the cost of each stand and the dinner is planned as a Welcome event to launch the festival. Further tickets may be purchased.

We have chosen the famous Cloud as our venue because it is a modern structure that has become a landmark along Auckland’s waterfront.

It reflects Aotearoa – Land of the Long White Cloud.

Stand fees for all distillers include:

  • Your liquor License Fee paid which enables you to sell bottles at all sessions.
  • Stock delivery from our warehouse in Auckland to the venue for Bump-In on Thursday 2nd.
  • An invitation for two people to attend the Welcome Wine Dinner hosted by ‘Mr Wine’ himself Bob Campbell MW. The dinner will be held upstairs in The Cloud on Thursday 2 February as a launch event for the gin festival. It will feature a three course meal paired to some of New Zealand’s finest wines.
  • Four tasting sessions over Friday, Saturday and Sunday 3-5 February. There will be 1200 tickets sold for each session.
  • We only allow gin or products made mainly from Gin. No whisky or other spirits please.
  • 3 x 3 pop-up space with two tables, ample ice, ice bucket and tongs plus Fever-Tree mixers & Soda Water.

Please make plans to bring a pull-up banner, table cloths and marketing materials. We suggest that you send 30 dozen bottles of your stock plus tasting stock.

Australian Distillers: You need to make your own arrangements to ship your stock, create your commercial invoice and pay your excise duty to New Zealand Customs. We will provide your delivery details for your stock to go to the our depot in Auckland and from there we will have the stock delivered to your stand.

New Zealand Distillers: You will be required to deliver your stock to our nominated depot in Auckland. Following your registration you will be sent the appropriate delivery instructions and from there we will deliver your stock to the venue.

Our Festivals Executive Kitty Wilson will assist with any questions you may have. Kitty@ginevents.com.au

You will need to send all of your delivery or shipping documents to Kitty so that we know when, where and how. Following your registration we will send more details as they come to hand.

DELEGATES’ KITS will be emailed in November.

We are excited at the prospects of each country learning more about the other and the friendships that will result.

Thank you for your support.
