Cradle Gin Festival, Glenburn Lodge


There is nothing that beats a refreshing G&T at the end of the day. It could be any gin-infused concoction to tell the truth. With the local Juniper-based renaissance exploding, there has never been a better time to hop on board.

Glenburn Lodge & Spa is throwing their weight behind this much-loved spirit by hosting the first ever, Cradle Gin Festival in the Cradle of Mankind on Sunday 23 September 2018.

So, whether you fancy yourself a bit of a connoisseur or one of those teasing with a fresh twist on locally-crafted gin, then this event is just for you. The festival concept, which brings together over 20 different craft and international gins, has been masterminded by event organisers Melody Barber and Ellen Oosthuizen.

So buckle up as we shine the spotlight on gin, where you can expand your knowledge, and meet like-minded aficionados close to home. Gin lovers can also look forward to artisanal food that can be expertly paired with various G&T cocktails.


A major sponsorship has been secured with Williams Hunt Roodepoort. “Success of a festival takes a great base of sponsorships, which forms the backbone of the event and we are super excited about this partnership” says Melody Barber from Be Different Brand Builders.

Williams Hunt Roodepoort (Opel & Isuzu) says – “we are delighted at the opportunity to be the sponsor of the Cradle Gin Festival and pleased to be involved with an event that takes place on the West Rand. We look forward to a long and positive association with Glenburn Lodge and the Cradle Gin Festival in particular and anticipate a most successful day.”
