World Gin Day looks a lot different this year as gin-lovers around the world will be celebrating at home rather than at bars, festivals, and drinks shows. So that drinkers can enjoy the occasion from home, Manchester Gin has launched a range of pre-made Negronis, using its award-winning gins, which will permanently join its range, alongside its six uniquely flavoured gins and Manchester Spirit Grain Vodka.

The Negroni is a classic Italian cocktail which typically consists of equal parts of gin, Campari and sweet vermouth. Manchester Gin has created three perfectly pre-made Negronis so that the popular cocktail can be easily enjoyed from home, without the need to stock up on cocktail ingredients or perfect your bartending skills. To serve simply stir down over ice, then strain into an ice-filled tumbler or short glass then garnish.

Signature Negroni

For a traditional tipple, try the Signature Negroni, created with Manchester Gin Signature, one of the most awarded gins in the country, Campari and Antica Formula. This mix makes for a contemporary take on the classic cocktail with a full bodied, yet balanced flavour filled with a rich orange notes and underpinned with bold tannins.

Raspberry Infused Negroni

If you prefer a sweeter sip, go for the Raspberry Infused Negroni, consisting of the perfect mix of Manchester Gin Raspberry Infused, Aperol and Cocchi Rosa. This cocktail’s floral flavour makes for the perfect summer drink and is complemented with a subdued bitterness which provides that classic Negroni kick.

FAC51The Haçienda Negroni

To add some zest to your World Gin Day, try the FAC51 The Haçienda Negroni which combines Manchester Gin FAC51The Haçienda, a lemon and lime flavoured gin made in collaboration with musical legend, Peter Hook, to honour Manchester’s famous acid house history. This zingy gin is paired with Aperol and Manchester Gin’s sister brand, Forty-Five Vermouth. This makes for a bright, refreshing Negroni which remains bold in flavour without becoming too bitter.

Manchester Gin co-founder and Master Distiller, Jen Wiggins, said, “Since we opened our premium cocktail bar and restaurant, Three Little Words, last September, we’ve loved using our gins to create interesting cocktails for our customers. As we are unable to see our customer’s face-to-face this World Gin Day, we wanted to create a fun way for the occasion to be enjoyed from home. We’ve got an amazing team who have really captured our collective creativity with an incredible take on the classic cocktail with these three original concoctions.

“We’ve been working throughout lockdown to provide fun and interesting ways to keep gin lovers entertained, including our Stay Home Tasting Set, our Gin Lockdown Package and have even broken the World Record for the World’s Biggest Gin Tasting, where 1,856 drinkers across the country live streamed our tasting to raise money for homeless charity, Big Change MCR. Our new Negroni range is yet another fun way to enjoy staying home whilst being able to sample our gins in a different context.”

Each bottle of Negroni is priced at £15 for 200ml and contains two to four servings, depending on your preference.
