Hold the tonic, here comes Manchester’s most expensive gin!

SAM | 6th August 2019

The city’s most expensive gin has been added to this restaurant’s bespoke drinks menu, costing £60 per serve!


1837 has become the first bar in the UK to stock NOLET’S Reserve Gin.


Not available to buy by the bottle anywhere else in the country, gin enthusiasts looking to try NOLET’S Reserve will need to head to 1837 in Manchester to sample its expertly blended flavours.


Strictly served straight, a measure of one of the world’s finest gins will cost around ten times the price of a standard gin.


Each batch contains the perfect combination of delicate botanicals, including saffron and verbena, which are individually macerated and then distilled before being blended with the gin base.


The award-winning batches are individually numbered by hand and allocated to a selective list of suppliers each year.


Bob Fish, Assistant Manager at 1837, said: “NOLET’S Reserve Gin is renowned for its unique botanicals and flavour profile and it is only found in a handful of bars around the world. As one of Manchester’s most premier gin bars, we felt it was our responsibility to bring the drink to the city and the UK.


“It’s a real must for discerning gin drinker’s and is served straight so you get the full impact of the flavour.


“We’ve spent several months developing the menu at 1837, using our in-house knowledge and creativity to ensure gin is the main focus. Our extensive range of gins allows us to be pretty confident when we say we can offer a gin to suit everyone.”


The Nolet family, creators of NOLET’S Reserve, also offer a NOLET’S Silver Gin variant that features real botanicals of rose, peach and raspberries.


As well as NOLET’S Reserve Gin, 1837 offers a selection of up to 70 carefully chosen gin brands as well as 14 cold-compound gins created on-site using locally foraged botanicals.


1837’s 60-seat bar has been designed to reflect the look and feel of the prohibition area, where gin itself came into prominence.


Its relaxed seating areas, dark lighting and regular live acoustic music events, recreate the intimate look, feel and atmosphere of the era’s popular speak easy bars.
