Friend of CN&CO, Gavin Kearns and his team at ShiftSM host a variety of events.

If you like beer, they are involved in the OnTap festivals in JOburg and Durban. They also help out at the annual Clarens Beer festival (Allan’s note: a must for everyone. Beers and ciders to suit anyone’s taste buds)

They also run the JumpCity and Stadium Dash events in Joburg and Durban.

This Friday, however, the team is hosting their second SA Distillery Fair at the Museum of Military History in Saxonwold this weekend, 30 & 31 August.

Take a journey with us through a rare selection of award winning distilleries from across the globe on a warm spring evening, set amongst the marvels of celebrated military machinery. Come swirl, sip and savor the flavours while meeting with the alchemists themselves.

Our entertainment is rather unique as we play host to the story telling acoustic sessions from top South African bands. Here is who you will be able to sit back and enjoy:- 

Friday Night – Rubber Duc | Will Rayz
Saturday Night – Justin Serrao | Simple Stories 

You will be able to discover the stories behind the music, engage with the bands and all the distillers while seated below the wing of a plane or a turret of a retired tiger tank.

Experience whisky or gin at it’s best and take a deeper look into the history, the flavours, the distilling techniques and the pairings of either whisky or gin in our exclusive masterclasses taking place each evening at the show. Find out more or book now by clicking here.
