Manchester Three Rivers Gin Experience Tour
We are welcomed with a perfect G&T and taken on an interactive historical journey of gin. View the beautiful copper pot still Angel as you are shown around the production area then discover the wide range of barks, berries, seeds, herbs and spices which give gin its unique flavours. Then it’s your turn to craft your very own 700ml bottle of gin to take home, using the mini copper pot stills, following the precise process of a master distiller and choosing from over fifty flavours. This tasty tour concludes at the bar!
Buxton & Bakewell
First up is beautiful Buxton, a spa town with landmarks such as Solomon’s Temple, the Grade I listed Crescent, the Devonshire Dome and Poole’s Cavern – a two-million-yearold limestone cave. We continue to the market town of Bakewell, home to grand period houses and of course, the eponymous tart.
