Covent Garden's HOTTEST 100 GIN COUNTDOWN

We were so excited when Covent Garden burst on the Brisbane bar scene, and we have loved working with Cuba and his team ever since they opened their doors. This beautiful gin bar has brought a garden party vibe to Boundary Street in West End, and their fantastic back bar features gins from all over the world as well as a great Aussie selection.

We’ve worked together on several events in the past year, including a packed out Gin Club and Melbourne Cup party.

To celebrate Ginuary we’re helping Covent Garden throw another massive party on Sunday 27th January (never fear - there is a public holiday the next day!). As part of this, Covent Garden will also be running Australia’s first ever HOTTEST 100 GIN countdown.

Now a shameless plug… help us get to #1 and vote for Ink Gin at the link HERE!
