A huge gin festival with UNLIMITED tastings is coming to Manchester


A huge gin festival with unlimited tastings is coming to Manchester this spring.

Hosted at Manchester Central, The Gin To My Tonic Show will host over 50 premium gin and mixer brands from across the globe.

Makers will also be showcasing their other creations including vodka, rum and whiskey.

Guests will have the chance to sample gins from producers in Australia and Sri Lanka alongside local products made right here in Manchester – including Manchester Gin, Tarsier Spirit, Stockport Gin and Faith & Sons.

They can look forward to well-stocked gin and cocktail bars, taste challenges, presentations from distilleries, tonic and garnish tutorials, and theatrical bartender performances aplenty.

And what’s more, the UK’s no.1 gin club are set to make a rare live appearance at the event, too. 

Flavours will abound, ranging from pineapple and mango to yuzu and Szechuan pepper, so no matter what sort of gin you’re into you can trust you’ll be well catered for.

Early bird tickets start at £15 for the gin enthusiast package, which includes unlimited tastings, a show guide, classes and workshops, a shop and drop facility and a bespoke Gin To My Tonic tote bag to take home.

Second tier tickets, priced between £30 and £35, will also grant you exclusive access to the Connoisseurs Lounge complete with a signature G&T, plus a branded Copa glass, stainless steel straw, and private cloakroom facility. 

The first session is on Friday 22nd May (6.30pm-10.30pm), followed by afternoon (12.30pm-4.30pm) and evening (6.30pm-10.30pm) sessions on Saturday 23rd. There will also be a Sunday session on 24th May (12pm-5pm).
