UOW alumni event: the art of gin making

  • -
  • Science Space, Innovation Campus, Squires Way, North Wollongong

Did you know that gin’s main ingredient, Juniper, is full of infection fighting flavonoids? Tonic water is full of quinine which fights off malaria and citrus is full of vitamins to fight off scurvy.

Join us and your fellow alumni at the Science Space as we delve into the science behind the wonderful world of Gin. The gin experts from Wollongong’s Births & Deaths and South Coast Distillery will teach us about everything from picking botanicals to the science of fermentation, distillation and ageing. There will be gin tastings, as well as an opportunity to explore the exhibition space at night, over canapes and drinks, while Music Farmers spin your favourite vinyl.

TIME: 6:00pm – 8:30pm

All proceeds from this event will support the Science Space, a not-for-profit organisation, which relies on the generosity of the community to assist with their success. This financial support contributes to the maintaining of planetarium and science theatre, allows for new exhibits and travelling exhibitions that visit the Space, and helps fund the development of their internship program.
