Manchester Gin celebrates an eighth export market for its award-winning Signature gin, this time across the Atlantic in Canada.
Following the brand’s astronomic success here in the UK, the award-winning gin, which uses northern favourite, dandelion and burdock as its signature botanicals, will be making its way to Canadian shelves in Ontario in January 2020.
Manchester Gin co-founders and Master Distillers, Jen Wiggins and Seb Heeley, secured the exciting category listing with the LCBO and made the first of many visits to the country in November.
On meeting national and regional buyers in Toronto, Seb Heeley said: “We absolutely loved being able to offer intimate Signature gin tasting sessions through one of the world’s largest purchasers of alcoholic drinks. On the back of the success of the new distillery, we are in a great place to introduce people internationally to our products and brand. Securing Canada as an export market is a dream come true, and we’re delighted to be taking our hard work worldwide.”
Manchester Gin’s Signature recipe combines classic citrus and juniper notes, underpinned by dandelion and burdock root; a nod to the city that inspired the gin: Manchester.
Buyers were also introduced to Manchester Gin’s new endeavour, the rehoming of its distillery The Spirit of Manchester, which now houses a brand new 1,000 litre still – Wonder Wend as well as a premium bar and restaurant. Here visitors can take part in gin tours, guided tastings and experience distilling their very own spirit.
Canada is Manchester Gin’s eighth export market, joining the likes of Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium and Jersey.
