Whiskey cocktail

A Whiskey Festival with over 370 whiskeys, tacos and live music is coming to the North Quarter in July

Beverage-centric festivals are becoming increasingly popular, with gin, rum, vodka and tequila each having their own celebrations that take place around the world every year.

Now Manchester’s largest whiskey-focused institution, The whiskey jar has finally relaunched its program of festivalswhich sees the bar combine its HUGE selection of over 350 whiskeys with live music, interactive sessions, street food and more.

For £20 per person, the festival has two sessions on Sunday July 31, one from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the other from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The ticket gives you access to the venue, the interactive sessions and, of course, 5 samples of different whiskey flavors from around the world.

You’ll also have access to discounted whiskeys and a selection of drams, as well as a taco stand serving fresh tacos.

In the lead up to the event, The Whiskey Jar will launch a exclusive cocktail list which will feature unique cocktails and special blends from the bar’s expert mixologists.

This is the first year Whiskey Festivals have returned post-COVID and they will likely be sold out events again. The July event is the third to take place this year, with the January and April events being extremely popular with whiskey lovers across the city.

Guests will also be joined by a roster of whiskey professionals who will talk about the different variations of the spirit, its history and how best to pair the drink with food and expert cocktail mixes in the bar’s basement.

After the event, guests are encouraged to hang out and enjoy the lively atmosphere of The Whiskey Jar as the music and cocktails continue into the evening.

If you can’t attend the event at the end of July, keep an eye out for other whiskey festivals to be announced later in the year.
