The Manchester Spirit Trails: Whiskey

The world of whisk(e)y trail

Hot on the heels of the epic 'Return of the Rum Trail' and following popular demand post the much lauded 'Whisky Wander' The Liquorists are back and this time it's the 'World of Whisk(e)y Trail'.

Last year saw an in depth look at the Whisky category with a focus on all things Scotch. This time round we are going to be looking in depth at whisk(e)y from all over the globe. We will be visiting, whisper it, the home of whisk(e)y with some Irish expressions, following on from that we're heading across the water to see what goes into North American bourbon and rye and then we'll have a sample of some whiskey, making lots of noise and turning lots of heads with a nod to award winning Japanese malt.

DrinksPart tour guide part spirits experts The Liquorists specialise in unique spirits and cocktails showcases. 'The World of Whisk(e)y trail' will dispel myths and old wives tales, look in depth at whisk(e)y in the 21st century and explore one of the most complex spirits on the planet.

You will be treated to five neat whisk(e)y samples each one expertly paired with a bespoke canape, before indulging in tailored long serves and cocktails designed to showcase each expression in a different light.

We will be visiting some of the cities best watering holes with stops in Trof (brand new bourbon bar), Apotheca, Socio Rehab, Noho and a very special secret finale venue and transport is supplied as you are lifted and laid across the city.

The evening culminates in a banquet of traditional fayre from the nations showcased.
