The second instalment of the Liquor Market is coming back to the Manchester Food and Drink Festival this September 27th as artisan, craft and boutique spirits make their way to Elixir Tonics & Treats. First held at the annual festival last year, the success has prompted curator Dave Marsland of Drinks Enthusiast to host another selection of spirits in one of Manchester’s most recognisable bars.
For one day only, the Deansgate based venue will be holding a number of stalls that will hold the likes of City of London gin, the first distillery in the City in over 200 years, as well as the highly acclaimed Italian range of Cocchi vermouth, Colorado newcomer Tincup whiskey and the Mexican styles of El Ron Prohibido rum.
Two sessions are available for the day, with the ticket price of £10 gaining you entry to your preferred time and giving you the chance to mingle, sample and experience a range of spirits straight from the brands themselves. Signature serves and recipe ideas will be available, as will the chance to purchase your favourite tipples directly on the day.
Other spirits available include the first showing of Sibling Distillery into the Manchester area as the young team bring their triple distilled gin. The Welsh Whisky Company are travelling up with their selection that includes Penderyn whisky, Brecon gin, Merlyn liqueur and Five vodka, whilst The Bottle Drinks Company will be showing off the likes of R. Delisle cognac and ‘The Secret’ chocolate fortified wine.
The Spanish style of Licor 43 will be on hand with recipe ideas, as will The Kraken spiced rum, Konik’s Tail vodka and The Irishman whiskey amongst others.
You will also be able to look into the world of drinks related photography at the market as award-winning and Manchester based bartender Jamie Stephenson brings his work for the viewing public.
All ticket holders will also have the chance to enter the Elixir Tonics & Treats liquor party to be held straight after the last session at 6pm. This gives the chance for the showcased brands to be a part of a specially curated menu for the evening and finishes the artisan market off in style.
