Manchester Science Festival 2015

Last year, we were happily involved as members of the public in Manchester Science Festival.

This year, we stepped up and decided we needed to take part. Out of an initial four possible proposals, three went on to be listed as events. And we couldn’t be more excited. Science and alcohol, what could possibly go wrong?


Ginesis: Distill my beating heart

Gin meets science in this tasting. With 6 gins, master distillers and Charlie Hooson-Sykes talking you through a tutored tasting featuring a little on gin, a little on tonic and a little on garnishes. Even geekier, we’re using the brand new space in Manchester Museum to host our event.
