East End Cellars Masterclass: Gold Medal Gin
4.00pm - 5.00pm
Australian gin. It’s everywhere – and what’s not to love? Spend a Friday evening sampling the finest craft gins entered into the latest Tasting Australia Spirit Awards presented by Master Cask. You’ll hear from Mark Reginato and Ollie Margan, two of the awards’ judges, and discover what takes a gin from good to get-in-my-glass fantastic.
Hospitality veteran Reginato launched much-loved Adelaide wine bar Hellbound in 2018 and also runs distribution business Man of Spirit. He has spent more than 20 years sampling, and frequently links local small bar owners with exciting new gin producers.
Ollie Margan also knows his way around a gin-based beverage. You’ll spot him tending bar at Shobosho, ShoSho and Maybe Mae, working with craft spirits from near and far.
Gins were well represented at the latest Tasting Australia Spirit Awards presented by Master Cask, with Ambleside Distillers taking out top spot overall for its Small Acre edition.
