The Manchester Spirit and Cocktail Trails run one-off tours of Manchester bars focusing on a particular spirit – and this time the spotlight is on vodka.
Like the Whisky Trail and Rum Trail before it, the Vodka Trail takes in five of the city's favourite drinking haunts. You're served a bespoke cocktail, a fine spirit sample, and a divine food pairing in each. It all ends with a finale feast in the last bar.
The bars on this tour are Socio Rehab, Epernay, Hula Bar, Blackdog Ballroom and Obsidian.
We've been on one of these tours and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the whole operation – the drinks brands are high end, the cocktails creations are original and skilful, and the food is well selected to complement the cocktails. Expect enlivening tastes throughout.
And you get the lovely company of the chaps from the Liquorists – these guys know their drinks and have plenty of tasting tips to share with you. They also drive you all in a mini bus between the bars.
The Vodka Trails take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays in October and November. Places are limited to fifteen on each tour so please book in advance if you'd like to try it.
We've got two tickets to the Vodka Trail to giveaway – you choose which date you want to go on. To enter, just click the red button above.
