Our Gin of the Month this July is Manchester Gin. Manchester Gin is created by Jen Wiggins and Seb Heeley with the help of their copper still ‘Wendy’ in Manchester; the city they live in, met in and fell in love in. As Manchester Gin was inspired by the city it is made in, the logo’s key feature is Manchester’s motif; the Worker Bee.
Manchester Gin is a small batch gin, the makers even hand fill, cap, label and write every bottle! A total of 12 botanicals are used when distilling including dandelion and burdock root which is a link to Jen and Seb’s Northern childhoods, as well as juniper, ground almond, coriander, angelica and citrus peels. This gin beautifully balanced and incredibly smooth, perfect in a gin cocktail or as a classic G&T served with a twist of orange peel & rosemary or a slice of fresh red grapefruit.
Nose: A clean and inviting fragrance with a classic juniper undertone and bright citrus top notes.
Palate: Dry citrus freshness followed by sweet liquorice and cassia, finished with earthy, spicy notes in the background.
Finish: A smooth creamy finish with a soft eucalyptus tone.
During July, receive a free Manchester Gin branded gin glass when you buy a bottle from The Hollies Farm Shops, whilst stocks last.
Manchester Gin is one of the 59 Gins hand selected to go into our Gindex in our new Restaurant, 59 at The Hollies at Little Budworth. Also included in our Gindex is their pink version which is raspberry infused to give a perfectly fruity gin.
Manchester Gin has just won GOLD at the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2017! Congratulations!
