Gin Tasting - A Tour of Manchester and beyond!
Of all alcoholic beverages, gin has the most colourful and dramatic history. Used to treat ailments from allergies, aches and pains right the way through to the plague. Gin has come a long way! Find out lots of interesting facts about gin at this fascinating two hour tasting.
We'll be taking a look at (and smelling) a range of herb, fruits and botanicals, then taste a selection of local, craft and small batch Gins from Manchester and beyond, served with high quality tonic. We'll explore each individual gin in its neat form before opening up the flavours further with some good quality tonics and mixers.
On the night we are delighted to be joined by Shelagh & Kevin Bourke
Shelagh has organised dozens of gin Festivals around the UK and will be presenting a range of gins from the North of England.
Kevin will be there to provide a potted history of gin from Gin Lane to the modern day.
Expect an evening of great stories and great gin, with Manchester Wine School’s Simon Woods there to make sure the night doesn’t go on too long!
This tasting is perfect for existing Gin lovers or for those who want to learn more about this fashionable and exciting spirit in a fun, informal and relaxed environment!
Full tasting notes to take home are provided alongside a few nibbles to accompany to tasting.
