The City of Manchester Distillery, Manchester

4.9
#1 of 6 in Breweries & Distilleries in Greater Manchester
Manchester Three Rivers is a super premium gin, created at Manchester’s first ever City Centre Distillery by Master Distiller Dave Rigby. Well-balanced with a combination of 11 botanicals, subtle perfume on the nose precedes a particularly smooth mouth-feel with mid palette sweetness derived from vanilla, cinnamon, almond and oats. Finally cardamom gives way to a satisfyingly long, spicy, black pepper finish. As you would expect, in accordance with our values, principles and in the spirit of all that is good about craft production; every single bottle is hand made in small batches using our 450 litre, custom built, Arnold Holstein copper pot still, at the City of Manchester Distillery in the heart of Manchester’s resurgent Green Quarter.

The City of Manchester Distillery is home to Manchester’s first interactive Gin Experience, offering visitors a unique opportunity to appreciate and participate in the Gin Renaissance. As a visitor you can expect to tour the distillery, learn about the often illustrious, sometimes dark and unquestionably intriguing history of gin. You will also gain an understanding of how gin’s diverse flavours are concocted, tasting a range of drinks and cocktails, before finally creating your own bespoke bottle of gin to take home.
The City of Manchester Distillery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Manchester Edition.
