The Gin Explorer's Club returned to the capital city this year after a two-year break. The event is India's largest gin festival, and this year it was celebrated at The Hub, DLF Promenade, New Delhi. The event, which was held on 2nd and 3rd April 2022, saw a massive turnout. It brought out some of the biggest Gin brands, all under one roof as the Space City Edition successfully transported guests to a magical galaxy - 'Gin City.' This year, the Gin Explorer's Club collaborated with Singapore Tourism and curated a special and unique experience bar that brought in cocktails inspired by iconic dishes of Singapore and a guest shift by celebrated Mixologist Peter Chua of Junior The Pocket Bar.
The festival celebrated international and Indian mixologists Edwin Naz of Soho, Singapore, with their bar takeover at Strager & Sons, along with Nitin Tewari doing a golden-hour special at Jaisalmer Bar and Rohan Matmary as he took over the Roku bar.
There was also a selection of some pop-up restaurants such as Burgerama, Francesco Pizzeria, Yeti, Koyla Kebab, and Masterchow brought, who bought a variety of flavours from Asian to Indian. However, in all these cuisines, we absolutely loved the 'Kinky Korean Noodles' from Burgerama and would surely recommend you try them!
Apart from this, Gin bars hosted many fun and interactive activities for the people. There was also an excellent lineup of musicians sorted for the festivities.
Speaking about Gin Explorers Club, Anjali Batra, founder of the festival and CMO, Food Talk India and Shuchir Suri, founder of the festival, co-founder of Food Talk India and founder of Jade Forest said, "The feeling was surreal to be reunited with Gin lovers across Delhi after two long years. It was an epic weekend of gin-ning, and we cannot wait to take this festival to other like Mumbai this May. We wanted this edition to be extra special, so the Space Edition was created as a theme to welcome our guests into Gin City, a land that celebrates the most magical spirit of Gin. Gin City was everything we had hoped for and more".
As the two-day event came to an end in Delhi, the Gin Explorer's Club plans to get bigger as they are all set to head to Mumbai in May for the second leg of the festival.
