On Saturday May 21th, a Gin Festival will be held in Amsterdam. In Europe, gin has made a true comeback in recent years. The spirit was developed in The Netherlands on the basis of the older jenever, which was first sold as a medicine in the late 16th century.
On this festival you can taste more than 100 types of gin and there will be several food trucks as well. Furthermore, you can listen to international speakers that will tell you everything about making gin. The festival will take place in Amsterdam Noord, there will be free ferries available from Amsterdam Central Station directly to the venue. More details and tickets: http://ginfestival.nl
