On 22nd May 2017 at 10:31pm a suicide bomber denoted an improvised explosive device on the foyer of the Manchester Arena as people were leaving an Ariana Grande concer.
By sheer happenstance our Gin of the Month for June 2017 was scheduled to be Manchester Three Rivers - it was a chance to share and highlight a great, award winning, gin.
The Gin Parlour is a small company in Greater Manchester. We have lived in, and around, Manchester, for nearly 20 years; it is our home. We were devasted by what happened on 22nd May 2017.
In response we started our June Gin of the Month a little early. Not only did we celebrate a superb local gin, we celebrated what this gin represents - the very best of Manchester. We donated all profits from the sale of Three Rivers until the end of June 2017 to the Manchester Evening News Fund.
Thanks to our customers we raised
for the fund!
