An exciting new festival will be landing in Dundee very soon.
North Hop has been on the go since 2014 and is becoming increasingly popular each year. It had its humble beginnings in the Highlands and the north-east as a small craft beer festival in locations like Aberdeen and Inverness. Now, organisers are turning their attentions to Dundee with The Spirit of the North Hop festival.
The new event will include a cool cocktail of pop-up bar experiences, distillers, cocktail-makers, craft brewers, street-food vendors, live music and DJ’s.
NEW FESTIVAL: Join Mick the Apex Duck at Spirit of North Hop Dundee festival on Sat 24 Nov 2018! 🎉
This festival will be our official re-launch bringing a whole host of food, drink & music delights & discoveries to the table! 🍸

The event will be short and sweet, taking place all in one day at the Apex Hotel – but it promises to be one to remember!
Foodies and drinks enthusiasts will get a chance to meet the faces behind their favourite beverages, meeting distillers and sampling products.
The festival will boast a variety of gins, whiskies, vodkas, rums, liqueurs, and even eau de vie and aqua vitae. Expect about 20 of the distilleries that you know and love plus some newer faces such as St Andrews Gin Co, Kingsbarns Distillery, Lindores Abbey, Sweetdram and Never 25.
Dundee’s own 71 Brewing will create a special drink just for the occasion.
The folk in charge of The Spirit of North Hop want you to know that this isn’t just another gin festival, there will also be a whole host of hand-selected street food vendors from Japanese to Mexican, a bit of Mediterranean grub and plenty to please veggie and vegan foodies too.
And like any good festival, you’ve got to have music.
Most of the festical’s events will take place in a purpose-built marquee at Apex City Quay Hotel over two ticketed sessions.
Dates: November 24
