Cocktail lover, seasoned gin connoisseur or total newbie, there’s something for everyone at this Gin Festival.
From September 28 -30, Upper Campfield Market will be transformed into an extraordinary Mancunian kingdom of gin – a gin-dom, if you will.
Organised by the people behind the Manchester Food and Drink Festival and the Gin Lounge, the festival will see the Grade II listed former Victorian market hall filled with gin brands include Bathtub Gin, Lakes Gin, Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur and Whittaker’s London Dry Gin.
Attendees will be able to sip their way around the festival, trying spectacular gins, enjoying cocktails and learning about the botanical spirit. Visitors can also become a cocktail mixing pro at mixology masterclasses.
There will also be the opportunity for visitors to create their own, bespoke gin at special workshops, where they will be able to choose the botanicals and flavourings to craft their very own, one of a kind, perfect gin.
There will be four ticketed sessions across three days. Tickets will include entry to the festival, a programme, a commemorative glass, gin sampling from dozens of distilleries, plus entry to gin masterclasses and workshops.
