About
The City of Manchester Distillery is the 1st ever fully licensed distillery in the city’s history! Home to multi award winning Three Rivers Gin, The UK’s original ‘Gin Experience’ as well as the newly launched Gin School, Rum and Vodka Experiences, we are an essential stop on any tour of Manchester, whether local or visiting from further afield. Visitors to any of the distillery’s experiences can expect to learn all about the exciting, intriguing, often dark and dangerous, weird and wonderful histories of a range of the world’s favourite spirits. Tour the distillery and see how we make our award-winning liquids, before finally having the chance to work with our distillers to create your own bottle or barrel of booze to take home. All this whilst sampling a range of drinks which include classic and bespoke cocktails. With over 50 botanical flavours to choose from, why not visit us and make your own perfect (potentially award winning!) gin, vodka or rum. Book your place now!

Superb experience and excellent drinks

Set in a beautiful grade 2 listed building the distillery and bar are stunning. The distillery tour is very interesting and engaging and covers the history of gin, the history of Manchester gin as well as samples of different gins that are made on site. Ste (our guide) was so engaging, passionate and knowledgeable and made the experience so enjoyable and fun. Highly recommended and is a must for anyone who likes gin.

First class evening from beginning to end.

There are enough reviews below to explain the evening but we had a fun and wonderful time. The covid measures put in place are excellent so please, don't be concerned about this.

Highly recommended

Gin, Gin and more good gin.

Bought for me as a Birthday present - staff on top of their game - great to make your own gin and to purchase a few bottles for presents. Small groups so you get the attention of the team. A great afternoon. Hope to purchase a few tours for Christmas presents.

Gin making
Sep 2020 • Couples
What a fab experience! Booked this for my hubby as a Christmas gift but due to Corona we have only just had chance to use it. The staff were so informative and really knew their stuff! The gin was delicious and the amount of drinks included in the experience was good. Loved making my own gin, was really fun and different to anything we have done before. Thanks Sherel and Craig For a great afternoon. If you like gin this is the perfect experience!

Belated birthday experience
Sep 2020 • Friends
We had booked to go to the Gin Experience for a Birthday treat for my Mum and Dad but had to put it off due to COVID. The communication throughout was excellent and we finally were able to rebook and attend. We had such a fabulous time - thank you to Sherel & Craig for making the experience such fun. The safety measures were excellent and rigourous and we felt very safe throughout. The history of gin and of the City or Manchester distillery was super interesting and we were joyfully supplied with gin drinks throughout! Then making our own bottles of gin was great too!
We would fully fully recommend this experience!! Thanks again.

A great experience
Sep 2020 • Couples
This was a brilliant way to spend an afternoon. Our host was so knowledgable about the process and history of gin and it was brilliant to make our own personalised bottle.

Sherel and Craig made us feel so welcome throughout. We would definitely recommend.

1st Class Afternoon
Aug 2020
Very informative and enjoyable experience, nice (short) history presentation before the fun starts. Excellent sample drinks throughout ahead of a trip to the Gin School and the chance to make your very own bottle. The hosts are very knowledgeable and relaxed in their presenting and very helpful when it comes to the "recipe" stage of the gin making. Final drink before leaving. Highly recommended (and the Three Rivers Gin that they make themselves is very good!!)
