Imbibis Craft Distillery

Hi Everyone

At Imbibis we don't let obstacles like a lockdown get in the way of your enjoyment of Ipswich's best gin and brandy and the really good news is that we are offering our Ekka prices to the listeners of River 949.

(We were supposed to be at the Ekka from 6 until 15 August 2021). We have a lot of gin tasting packs ready to go which includes our internationally award winning gin 'The Three Myrtles'.

Head to our website – For a limited time from Saturday 6th until Sunday 15th August 2021 our gin tasting packs and embroidered shirts will be 16% off – use code [4YDF7TTQ15GL] at the checkout. This code is only for use on these two products. If you order a tasting pack we will be throwing in one dried citrus cocktail pack as a bonus. And in even better news for a limited time if your order is over $100.00 postage is free.

This offer is limited to the first 100 gin tasting packs.
