KZN’s first Fitch & Leedes Gin and Tonic Festival – a success!

On Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 KZN hosted the very first Fitch & Leedes Gin and Tonic Festival at the picturesque Chris Saunders Park in the heart of Umhlanga.

With a combination of lifestyle elements, bringing together food, music and the biggest variety of gin that Durban has ever seen, the event was a resounding success with gin enthusiasts and those just in for the fun of it, having the choice to select between a Gin & Tonic taster or a perfect serve Gin & Tonic, poured by the mixologists, complemented by fresh garnishes as well as relaxed live music by the Gus Brown band as well as other local acts.

The event saw a great turnout and out of the hundreds of people that attended the festival, I captured quite a few of the groups of friends and family that were enjoying the experience. Seen at the event were:


 Aran Jung, Carolyn Ogle and Cathrine Boogaard
Laura and Warren Taylor, Craig and Lee Du Bruyn and Di Smith
