Manchester Three Rivers Gin
|Distilled in||Manchester, England|
|Garnish with||Dried Apricot and Rosemary|
Manchester Three Rivers Gin is a fabulously smooth, dry and sweet gin with the unusual addition of oats as a botanical.
Manchester Distillery, based in the heart of the city, is a small but determined distillery. Intertwined in the drinks and bar industry at large, they have set out to make genuine, well-crafted super premium spirits.
Made with eleven botanicals (including oats, Madagascan vanilla, cinnamon and Valencian orange peel), Manchester Three Rivers Gin is a gently aromatic spirit. Rich and creamy, it has an unmistakable softness full of oats and vanilla, that slowly breaks into baked spices before sharpening up and finishing on a healthy burst of black pepper.
Had this at the Gin Festival and glad I chose this as one of my 7 gins that day. I'm a big fan of Twisted Nose and 3 Rivers reminded me of this, a bit more citrussy, but a very good rounded flavour with lots of flavours to pick up on. Great gin!
One of the most memorable gins I've ever tasted - well spiced, but not at all overbearing. If I could describe a gin as savoury then this would be it! I have it with tonic and a garnish of rosemary, and is now my go-to gin.
