Off 96

The Gin Society returned to Manchester Cathedral this month, offering a whole host of different flavoured gins for fans to try.

Gin lovers who attended the event could choose from the Tasting Station, British Gins, Fruity Gins, World Gins and then Gins from Zymurgorium, Cuckoo Gin, and Jacqson.

Organiser of the event Isabel Mourato said,

“The Gin Society at Manchester Cathedral is our flagship event and is always a pleasure to organise. Once again, customer feedback was great about the event atmosphere, staff and obviously the gins.

“Everyone loved the Tasting Station and the idea of the Guest Gins at the bars. We can’t wait to come back to this amazing building in 2018 with more surprises.”

Not only were there gins to enjoy, but also Dr Sid with his gramophone, playing a unique array of jive music, swing, and blues for guests to enjoy.

The event was originally scheduled to run for three days but an additional date was added due to the high demand for tickets, most days selling out weeks prior to the event.
