We started cruising the waterways of Greater Manchester back in 2010 with our first ever Gin cruise, we called it the Gincident…it sold out!! ?

In 2019 we sold out 75 cruises, and had 22 private corporate cruises….hosting nearly 4000 people drinking nearly 28,000 perfectly crafted cocktails!!

In 2020 we will host over 100 cruises imbibing the best Gin, Rum, Whisk(e)y, Tequila and Wines we can get our hands on!!!

What do you get for your money? Here are the numbers;

Each cruise consists of a 3 hour cruise from Castlefield to Media City and back again. You get 7 banging drinks, carefully crafted G&T’s, sumptuous cocktails, artisan spirits or gorgeous, sophisticated wines, depending on the cruise…and tables groaning with delicious food paired with the spirit or wine focus of the cruise.

Each cruise has a guided expert tasting and an entertaining history…whilst we are drinking booze on a cruise, a booze cruise we are not!

We offer group booking discounts and whole boat private hire – for more info email [email protected] for more info!!

Whether it be the quintessential summer cruise on the Gincident, or the cooler-than-the-other-side-of-the-pillow Mississippi Blues Cruise, the raucous Rum Runner’s Revenge, the Liquorists, in association with Grape to Grain and City Centre Cruises, have been ruling the water ways of Manchester since 2010.

Come see why!!

We have hosted all manner of folk from Manchester, and from further afield, as we wander the  waterways of Mancunia, come share our love for all things boozy and our passion for this amazing city of ours.

We would love to meet ya x
