Manchester Gin launches its first limited edition festive inspired ‘Winter Spiced Gin’

The Spirit of Manchester Distillery, home to Manchester Gin, has released its first limited edition festive inspired tipple: Winter Spiced Gin.

Winter Spiced Gin is a unique full-strength spirit, at 40% ABV, and the first of Manchester Gin’s award-winning range to have both a hot and cold serve recommendation. The winter warmer has been created with the classic flavours of Yuletide in mind to transport your taste buds to the festive season with every sip.  

This fun, festive expression has a beautiful blend of orange and cinnamon which gives each sip that citrus kick that every gin fanatic loves, followed by a sensationally warm, spicy taste that’s fitting for a Christmas tipple. Complementing these dominant flavours are notes of clove and nutmeg, creating a tipple packed with nostalgic Yuletide spices. Underpinning these festive botanicals are the Manchester Gin Signature botanicals, dandelion and burdock, which give a robust depth of flavour to the gin. 

These wonderfully wintery flavours are perfectly wrapped up in Manchester Gin’s iconic hexagon embossed bottle, ready to be enjoyed. 

An incredible winter warmer, this gin can be served hot with an aromatic tonic syrup for a sweet citrus yet spicy sip. Complete this Christmas concoction with a twist of flamed orange peel and a cinnamon stick for the ultimate festive kick. Alternatively, Winter Spiced Gin is just as delicious served cold – simply pour slowly over a few ice cubes, add your aromatic tonic, garnish and enjoy. 

Manchester Gin co-founder and Master Distiller, Seb Heeley, said: “After a hard year for many, we want to celebrate the festive season more than ever before, and what better way to put a smile on people’s faces than with a delicious yet distinctively Christmassy gin? 

“We had such fun sampling the festive flavours until we found the perfect expression, which is both high quality and mouth-wateringly delicious. Winter Spiced Gin has the perfect balance of spice and citrus to provide that perfectly festive flavour whilst creating a drink which everyone will enjoy. It’s also really exciting to be launching our first gin with a recommended hot serve, further adding to the warm feeling this unique blend of botanicals creates.

“We hope that gin-lovers across the country enjoy drinking Winter Spiced just as much as we enjoyed creating it.” 

Winter Spiced Gin: 500ml £35, 40% ABV. 

Winter Spiced Gin is launching this November and is now available to pre-order from www.manchestergin.co.uk.
