The Taste Bundaberg Festival’s popular Gin & Pie Day returns to Kalki Moon Distillery on Saturday 12 August, showcasing the region's iconic brands to festival goers.

Guests can soak up the atmosphere of Kalki Moon, Bundaberg’s international-award winning distillery, while enjoying a gin cocktail or sampling one of their locally distilled spirits.

The family-run artisan distillery is proud of its Bundaberg heritage, and sources many of its ingredients from the region’s growers and producers.

Bringing the pies to Gin & Pie Day is Bundaberg’s Chic’s Pies, a local business with over 70 years of experience in the region and a track record for producing delicious pies.

Patrons who don’t fancy a cocktail can also enjoy craft beer from Ballistic Brewing Co, a delicious cider from Ohana’s Cheeky Tiki of Childers and wine from South Burnett’s Moffatdale Ridge.

Kalki Moon Distillery Manager Jodie Apcar said this year’s event would be bigger and better than last year.

“It was a really great turnout last year, so there will be an extra 200 tickets available this year,” she said.

“We have also extended the area we will be using to include out the back (of the distillery).”

Adding to the ambience, guests will be entertained into the evening by The Spargo Brothers, Ryan Giles and DJ Brad Marsellos.

“It will be a good afternoon, whether you just want to stay for a pie and drink or stay to enjoy the music throughout the afternoon and evening,” Jodie said.

“(Taste Bundaberg Festival) is really great for us, for people to come that don’t know who we are.”

“It’s nice to get people who aren’t local involved.”

Gin & Pie Day is a ticketed event costing $20, with a Kalki Moon gin cocktail and one of Chic’s iconic pies included in the ticket price.

The event will be held Saturday 12 August, from 2 pm to 10 pm, at Kalki Moon Distillery, 1D/22 Commercial Street, Bundaberg.

Tickets on sale Monday 10 July.

Please note this is an 18+ only event.
