Ginesis at Chetham’s Library, Manchester, 26 October 2016, from £20.00 - Book now

They’re a smart lot on the Manchester Science Festival team – for what better way to spike people’s interest in science than with alcohol. This year’s programme sees the return of Ginesis, a fascinating (and libatory) investigation into mother’s ruin, bunter’s tea, Vera Lynn… otherwise known as gin. Lead by the indecently knowledgeable Charlie Hooson-Skyes (who wrote our guide to the best gin bars in Manchester and is otherwise known as The Lady Sybil), Ginesis explores the biology of taste, the chemical processes behind the making of gin and how our past affects which tastes we enjoy – with plenty of tastings along the way.

Learn what garnish goes best with which gin, discover rare (and wonderful) distillations, and explore the world of tonics – Ginesis has it all. Alternatively, if you’re more of a fan of the peat and smoke of whisky, there’s also a Whiskyology session, also at Chetham’s Library (and may we kindly refer you to our guide to whisky bars in Manchester?).
