Experiences and Events

Head Office

Our Head Office team look after, amongst other things, marketing, administration, sales and operations. Some jobs are based in the field, whilst others are more office based. Working across the 6 brands in our spirits portfolio, as well as Three Little Words Cocktail Bar and Restaurant, roles in our Head Office are varied, fast paced and always exciting!

Three Little Words

Three Little Words, our award winning cocktail bar and kitchen, employs both front of house or back of house roles. Our front of house team were awarded Bar Team of the Year 2022 by Top 50 Cocktail Bars, something we are immensely proud of, and testament to the hard work put in every day by the team. From serving on the floor, creating and making our cocktails, or behind the scenes, helping everything run smoothly, our FOH team take on all roles over their working week. We make everything from scratch in our kitchen, and most of our ingredients used in our cocktails are made in-house, from macerations and infusions to fat-washes and distillates.

Production and Distilling

The distillery is at the centre of our business, producing all of our spirits in the portfolio - gin, vodka, rum, vermouth, and most recently whisky. As well as our own spirits, we also collaborate with some of Manchester’s best loved venues in creating bespoke spirits, and our team of distillers work hard creating the perfect recipes. Our production team are based in Trafford Park and hand label, bottle and ship all of our orders across the globe!

Distillery Experiences and Events

Our distillery experiences are recognised not only in Manchester but nationally, as a top visitor attraction. Our gin guides deliver distillery tours and gin schools, showing them around the distillery and teaching hundreds of guests per week how to make their own gin. Our guides also work on our bar or at external events doing product sampling or hosting pop up bars at iconic locations throughout Manchester.
