Launched in 2016 and voted the No. 1 Thing to do in Manchester by Trip Advisor over the last 3 years, The City of Manchester Distillery, Multi Award Winning ‘Gin Experience’ is the original and the best.
For gin lovers, new comers and anyone in between, this is a unique opportunity to see gin making at is finest and play an active part in the Gin Renaissance.
During the 3-hour interactive experience guests will be guided through the dark and dangerous, weird and wonderful, juniper soaked history of gin. They will then tour the distillery whilst drinking classic and bespoke cocktails, Gin & Tonics and sampling a variety of tasters.
Our Host’s will demystify the gin making process and talk you through how to create a (potentially) award-winning recipe, before moving to ‘The Lab’ where every guest gets the opportunity to make his or her own bespoke bottle of gin from over 50 botanical flavours.

First and foremost we welcome you to the City of Manchester Distillery and put a Manchester Three Rivers Gin perfect serve G&T in your hand.
The tour begins with an introduction to our wonderful gin, a bit about our brief history and the story of how we came to be in the centre of the thriving metropolis that is Manchester.
To know where we’re going it’s important to look at where we have been. So we take you on an immersive and interactive historical journey of gin: how it began, how it evolved, how it became infamous and what the future holds.
Every drop of Manchester Three Rivers Gin is hand crafted on site at the distillery and it will be our great pleasure to show you our beautiful copper pot still Angel whilst walking you around our production facility.
At this point, with an understanding of the origins of gin and how gin is made, we move back to the gin school. Here you will learn all about the wide array of barks, berries, seeds, herbs and spices known as botanicals, which give gin its unique flavours and character.
Naturally the experience concludes at our bar where we round off the evening with our Gin Fizz cocktail!.
