Sebastian Heeley, along with his now partner Jen Wiggins, set up the award winning Manchester Gin in May 2016.

Listen to Sebastian share the love story behind the formation, growth and development of Manchester Gin, shares a few distilling secrets and shares his delight at such a young company already receiving an array of plaudits, recognitions and awards at international industry competitions.

When Manchester Gin was born, it was in the dining room of a house that Jen and Seb had just bought. Now, the Spirit of Manchester Distillery occupies a space in the centre of the city where every bottle is hand-crafted and distilled in small batches.
