Juniper Festival Online

With Juniper Festival postponed until September, we couldn't have 2020 being the first in seven years not to have Scotland's original gin festival in June. Therefore we're bringing the joy and education of our fantasic event to you during lockdown, and present the very first 360° virtual gin festival - Juniper Festival Online!

Sample pack sales have now finished, but we'll leave the virtual festival up for another week for you to enjoy.

Juniper Festival 2020 - 26th & 27th September

The virtual festival is best viewed on a desktop or laptop, or Chrome browser on mobile devices.

Building a more environmentally conscious gin festival.

We're commited to making Juniper Festival as sustainable as possible, with the future goal of making the first carbon neutral gin festival.

This year, we'll continue our use of compostable materials, focus on eco-conscious gin brands, and for this year we've partnered with the wonderful Trees For Life, with £2 of each general admission ticket going to help with their important rewilding program in Scotland.

Our intention is to become the first carbon neutral gin festival, and will strive to achieve that goal as soon as possible with the help of our partners. You can find out more about the work they do below:

Trees For Life

Trees For Life are a multi-award winning conservation charity dedicated to rewilding the Scottish Highlands through planting native trees, reintroducing missing species such as the red squirrel, and inspiring others to get involved and aid wellbeing.


Vegware is an Edinburgh based specialist in plant-based compostable foodservice packaging, made from plants using renewable, lower carbon, recycled or reclaimed materials, and designed to be commercially compostable with food waste, where accepted.


Our venue since Juniper Festival's inception in 2014, Summerhall is now a 'Closed Loop' venue, meaning all compostable materials are kept separate, and uplifted by vegware and disposed of correctly after the festival.
