Founder Andrew Scutts comments;
“This show reflects the increasing trend and popularity of cocktail culture and the fact Manchester has a world leading cocktail bar scene. This event is a unique opportunity to discover all Manchester’s top bars under one roof and learn the skilful art of cocktail making”

Last year’s show was a huge success with 400 people attending the evening event, which runs from 5:30pm till 10:00pm. For £18.00 visitors receive three tokens upon entry and are able to exchange them for a cocktail, made by themselves under the expert tuition of the city’s top bartenders. Each bar will also be running competitions for chances to win great prizes with details being released through facebook & twitter in the lead up to the event. Visitors will also be able to watch main stage demonstrations or participate in private tutored tasting sessions with local drink experts The Liquorists.
