Two of the best spirits to enjoy in hot weather are currently having a moment and Thirst Mag is bringing them together in GinRum.Me, the first festival of its kind celebrating gin and rum in KL.

On 7 July, KL Journal will host the full day (12pm – 8pm) GinRum.Me event, featuring spirits tasting, workshops, a pop-up bar from The Secret Mermaid (Singapore), guest shifts, food pairings, and an excellent selection of gin and rum cocktails. One event highlight is the
being able to taste over 20 different labels of gin and rum, neat, at the exhibitors’ booth, including familiar brands like Angostura, Mekhong, Phraya, Plantation, Ron Zacapa, Gin Agricolo, Caorunn, Citadelle, Nikka Gin, and The Botanist, supported by the official tonic of the event, Fentimans.

Cocktails on the day are sold at RM25 – RM30 per drink and will be served at the main bar – most notably the Jungle Bird, Malaysia’s national classic and the signature serve of the event – and each brand will present their own signature cocktail. For those who want to take a break from the spirits, Monin will be whipping up mocktails, and Beerfarm will supply craft beer.

Tickets are available at the Thirst eShop at RM85 per person, or for a group purchase of five or more email [email protected] to get the tickets at RM75 per person. Each ticket comes with a GinRum.Me tasting glass, and a passport, which gives you a further discount on special cocktails in our 15 partner bars from 7 to 14 July 2018.

Attendees are encouraged to take public transport to the venue as parking in the surrounding area is very limited (and also because you shouldn’t drink and drive) – so use the MRT or Monorail and walk to the venue, or use the Grab promo code GINRUMME18 on the event
day to get you straight to the door and home.

We’re pleased to announce GinRum.Me will be a plastic straw-free event – so bring your own, or drink without! Check out the Tak Nak Straw booth with the exhibitors for alternatives to introduce in your day-to-day life.
