The City of Manchester Distillery, home of Manchester Three Rivers Gin and the original ‘Gin Experience’, has launched its next immersive experience as it looks to bring consumers together over a tot of rum.
The City of Manchester Distillery opened its doors in 2016 and has since gone on to establish itself as the No. 1 ‘Things to Do’ in Manchester by Trip Advisor.
Having won a variety of awards for its liquids and experiences, The City of Manchester Distillery is an essential stop on any tour of city. Dave Rigby, owner and Master Distiller of the City of Manchester Distillery has decided to expand the experiences to include rum, capitalising on the recognition that the distillery has become the first in the history of Greater Manchester to be recognised with a full distiller licence.
Partnering up with Dave Marsland of the Manchester Rum Festival, the Manchester Rum Experience promises a 3-hour interactive, liquid adventure where guests can expect to tour the distillery, learn all about the history and diversity of rum, sample a variety of styles, drink classic and bespoke cocktail creations and visit ‘The Lab’ to fill their own mini barrel in this unique, tasting/making experience.
Dave Rigby says, “Our motivation with the new ‘Rum Experience’ was to pay homage to some of the influences which drove us to build the distillery at the outset. As a collective we have been on an amazing journey over the last few years and as such we wanted to share some of these incredible experiences, stories and some of the fun we’d had, through a range of new and diverse, interactive events at the distillery.”
With support from a host of award-winning brands including Chairman’s Reserve, Bacardi, Don Q, Appleton Estate, Diplomatico, Pussers, Wray & Nephew, Doorly’s, Plantation and Gosling’s, as well as Neat Glass, the ultimate spirits tasting glass, customers will be experiencing a huge breadth of history in one of the fastest growing spirit categories.
Following its launch at the end of August, tickets for the Manchester Rum Experience are now available for the monthly sessions and can be bought via https://cityofmanchesterdistillery.com
