Would you like to become a liquor connoisseur for the day? Look no further as a brand new liquor tasting experience is starting in the heart of Manchester city center – and there’s vodka, rum AND gin on the menu.

The “Taste the Distillery” experience starts on October 22nd, 2021 and offers visitors the opportunity to taste and learn about six spirits, including the multi-award-winning Manchester Gin, as The Spirit of Manchester Distillery is behind the new experience.

To celebrate the new visitor experience, The Spirit of Manchester Distillery has created a new liquor tasting room located in the stunning, Grade II listed railway arches on Watson Street.

Created to bring something new to loyal customers and something for spirit lovers, the experience focuses on tasting: One-Eyed Rebel Rum, Manchester Spirit Vodka and also includes two favorites from the gin range including Manchester Gin and Raspberry Infused Manchester Gin Hacienda – all made in the city center.

Seb Heeley, Master Distiller at The Spirit of Manchester Distillery and Co-Founder of Manchester Gin, said, “Our brand new tasting experience brings our 6 years in the industry to life.

We’ve spent those years perfecting the art of distillation for multiple spirits and while it started with gin we’re exploring exciting new products that we’d love to share with our customers.

A selection of spirits – and not a selection of gins – means that there is always something for everyone and, hopefully, you will always learn something new. “

Upon arrival, guests receive a welcome drink and can choose between vodka, rum, or gin before starting their tour of the distillery. Guests get an inside look at the process, followed by a guided tasting of The Spirit of Manchester Distillery range of spirits, where guests learn about the flavor profiles and get a sense of what the team is passionate about. The Taste the Distillery Experience takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour and costs £ 25 per person. All visitors to the distillery also receive a 10% discount in the distillery shop and in the Three Little Words cocktail lounge.

Available every Friday and Saturday for up to 20 people at different times in October and November, whereby the regular times on Fridays at 2:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 12:30 p.m. can be booked throughout December.
