We LOVE Festive Didsbury Gin!
We like to drink gin as much as (if not more) than everyone else, but we’re definitely partial to a bit of Manc born Didsbury Gin.
Their original and raspberry & elderflower flavours have got us through many a busy Thursday (Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday) evening, and it was much to our delight, when they mentioned they were working on a Christmas flavour.
We then proceeded to drink every bottle we had in the office to make way for the new festive stock, helped a little (a lot) by Liam and Mark of Didsbury Gin who, it’s fair to say, are happy with their own product.
The liqueur, served over ice or in a warm glass embodies everyone’s favourite yuletide treats of mince pies and Christmas pudding! With a heady combination of festive flavours, cinnamon, nutmeg, mixed spice and a couple more seasonal ingredients which are kept strictly under wraps, the Didsbury Gin Christmas Liqueur has become our absolute festive favourite.
Although we would very much like to keep it all for ourselves, we knew that as the Christmas markets draw closer and the sun has permanently disappeared, this would most definitely be a hit amongst other gin lovers throughout Manchester and further afield.
We spoke to our pals at Lovin Manchester who are also partial to a gin or two and they were just as excited as us! With very little persuading they tried a couple of samples for themselves and put together a festive video, complete with dried oranges, Christmas stockings and fairy lights.
The video hit their socials at 5pm on a Thursday evening – some say prime time for a gin – and by the end of the day had reached 40,000 views. It has now been viewed 75,000 times with almost 500 shares.
Fantastic content that drove measurable results including immediate direct sales.
A record 47M bottles of gin were sold in 2017, with this year set to be no different. We’re a nation of gin lovers and the Didsbury Gin Christmas liqueur seems to have really hit the spot.

Is it Christmas yet?
