In 2016, couple Seb & Jen decided to have a go at making their favourite spirit from their dining room. With a plan to make 100 bottles a month, they installed Wendy, a bespoke copper, still named for Jen’s late mum. Before they knew it, they’d produced 25,000 bottles from that dining room. 

In 2019, they moved into their state-of-the-art distillery in six lovingly restored Grade-II* listed railway arches in the heart of Manchester, where they produce over 100,000 bottles a year. The arches house our world-class distillery and cocktail bar, Three Little Words, which won Bar Team of the Year at the 2022 Top 50 Cocktail Bars awards. This season’s menu celebrates the art of distilling, with a drink dedicated to each of the 16 stages of spirits production, from harvesting through infusion and maceration, to bottling and sipping. 

The range is highly awarded by prestigious spirits bodies from around the world and the trophy cabinet boast over 60 medals recognising the distillery, the business and the spirits, including Double Gold medals, gold medals and masters at San Francisco Spirits Competition, the Spirits Masters, IWSC, CWSA, World Gin, Rum and Vodka Awards, ISC, and more. 

Our distillery is driven by flavour and built on love: a love for Manchester, a love for spirits, and of course, a love story
