Gin, Laughs + Gin
Oct 2021
Jamie and Jackson were our guides for the afternoon and they were brilliant. We had a great time tasting different gins, finding our favourite base and building our own using a huuuuge range of botanicals.
Whilst the botanicals were distilling, Jamie spoke about the history of the business and it was clear how passionate they both were and spoke to fondly of the founders Jen + Seb.
We took our gins home and can't wait to try them! Thank you both for a brilliant afternoon :)

Gin school, Sunday roast what more can you ask for?
Oct 2021 • Couples
What a fabulous way to spend a Sunday and learn more about one of our favourite drinks. Jamie, who was our 'gin teacher', was knowledgeable and humerous. It was fascinating to learn the origins of so many well known sayings relating to gin. It was also great to be able to create our own bottle of gin with guidance from Jamie. The proof of how good it is will have to wait. 🤞A thoroughly enjoyable experience followed by a fabulous Sunday roast in the restaurant. Will be recommending this to our gin drinking friends. Thank you 'Spirit of Manchester'.

Tour and Roast experience
Oct 2021 • Couples
We had a fantastic gin tasting and Sunday roast experience this afternoon at the distillery and 3 little words restaurant. From the hilarious, passionate and knowledgeable distillery guide, to the super friendly staff who served us a delicious roast beef dinner, we couldn’t fault it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Such a treat, and would highly recommend. We will be back!

Had a great experience in the Manchester Gin school. Our host Jamie had great knowledge and enthusiasm for the art of gin making and we learned a lot in a lovely setting. Made our own gin to our own recipes and really looking forward to trying them.

Manchester Gin distillery experience
Oct 2021 • Couples
We went on the Manchester Gin experience and found it really good.
Steve our tour guide was both entertaining and informative. He clearly enjoys sharing how the company was established and how it’s grown and become so successful due to the couple who started it in 2013. We all got to try various Gins and the learn the differences between each one.
We had a tour of the distillery where Steve explained the process.
We really enjoyed our experience. The atmosphere was lovely, the staff were so friendly and the Gin’s delicious.
We’d definitely recommend Manchester Gin. For the experience and also the restaurant too.

Amazing experience
Oct 2021 • Friends
Wow, what an amazing experience! We loved our gin-making experience on Saturday evening. Jamie was the perfect host - we learned an awful lot about the history of Manchester Gin, the art of distilling gin, and then the chance to make our very own… all while having a laugh! As part of the experience, you get 2 G&Ts, 5 gin samples as part of the tasting, and then your very own 50cl bottle of gin (and tote bag). A really nice touch is that your recipe is registered so you can call up any time and re-order… I just hope my ‘Messiah’ is a good one! Thanks so much again for an enjoyable and memorable experience - I cannot recommend enough!
