Manchester Gin Has Created A Showstopping Sixth Flavour

Award-winning distiller, Manchester Gin has created its showstopping sixth flavour, infused with the sweetness of a British classic, blackberry.

This winter, master distillers Jennie Wiggins and Seb Heeley have taken inspiration from Britain’s hedgerows, using blackberries to create a flavour that’s sweet yet bold — perfect for winter gin drinking!

Lovingly created in The Spirit of Manchester Distillery, located in the heart of the city centre, this new expression is made with Manchester Gin’s classic botanicals, dandelion and burdock root, with the addition of the juice of bold blackberries which gives it an unmistakable deep red hue.

The delicious Blackberry Infused Gin has a smooth yet warming finish to every sip, perfect when paired with Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic.

Manchester Gin uses only the finest botanicals in the distilling process, making its products high quality and full of flavour. Its iconic botanicals — dandelion and burdock — are locally sourced and blended with blackberries in this latest flavour combination.

Master Distiller and Manchester Gin co-founder Seb Heeley said:

“Our aim was to create a bold, unmistakably blackberry gin, so we’re really proud of Blackberry Infused.

“We’ve maintained a high ABV and a clear gin character that’s both juniper-forward, and carefully balanced with the blackberries. It’s got the sweetness and juice of the berry, but still very much gin.

“Its rich and warm flavour is perfect for autumnal drinks, hot cocktails, or a G&T that’s bursting with flavour. I don’t think there’s anything else like it on the premium market right now, so we’re really pleased to be able to give our customers something new and unique.”

Blackberry Infused is available on the website now and to taste in cocktails and G&Ts in Manchester Gin’s bar and restaurant, Three Little Words.

The Blackberry Infused gin will take pride of place alongside Manchester Gin’s core range which includes Signature, Wild Spirit, Raspberry Infused, Overboard and Haçienda gin.
