Create an itinerary including The City of Manchester Distillery
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 Edition.

  • Bought for me as a Birthday present - staff on top of their game - great to make your own gin and to purchase a few bottles for presents. Small groups so you get the attention of the team. A great afternoon. Hope to purchase a few tours for Christmas presents.
  • This place is amazing. So interesting to hear the story of gin..... I really never knew. Lots of lovely gin tasting throughout. The gin school, making our own was fantastic. There was a large party of us so we were a little excited and after all the gin, a little merry. One of the best times I have had. I would highly recommend a visit.
