When you’re planning your trip to Floriade make sure you schedule in a visit to the Underground Spirits’ Ginternational Bar. Here are our top five reasons why you should swing by:

Take home a piece of Canberra

Underground Spirits is locally made at their small-batch distillery in Kambah in Canberra’s South. Their family business is all about invention and passion, crafting premium spirits using the best in local and regional ingredients. What results is pure vodka and gin, and a little taste of the Canberra region to take home with you.  

Limited edition Floriade gin

Underground Spirits created this beauty exclusively for Floriade. The Lakeside Gin is inspired by the festival, evoking thoughts of fresh blooming flowers, infused with cherry blossoms, rose and pine. It tastes just like Spring! Find it at Ginternational where you can buy a bottle or sip on a Lakeside G&T, and at Floriade’s Shop CBR and the Canberra and Region Visitor Centre.

Try one of the many cocktails on offer

Fancy a spring cocktail at Floriade? Ginternational is serving up a range of cocktails to be enjoyed including Spring Mingle featuring their Caramel Vodka, Lady of the Lake featuring their Floriade Lakeside Gin and created by local the Martini Whisperer, and just announced especially for Floriade NightFest, they will be serving up their Under & ONA cocktail, an Espresso Martini featuring Caramel Vodka with the impressive ONA Flavours of Spring coffee. What a combination!

Take a break

Time to stop and smell the flowers and sit down on one of the Ginternational deck chairs, or floral loveseat, is the perfect way to enjoy Floriade in Canberra’s spring sunshine. Whilst sipping one of their delicious drinks of course.

Try one of the other local beverages on offer

Underground Spirits are all about local supporting local. Head to Ginternational for a cold beer from Capital Brewing Co., and a variety of wine styles from the lovely Contentious Character.

Underground Spirits’ Ginternational Bar is open every day of Floriade from 12noon until 5pm, and each night of NightFest.
