I Love MCR has unveiled a pink Strawberry Jam Gin, in partnership with Mancunian jam connoisseurs, F. Duerr & Sons Ltd.
This Strawberry Jam Gin (38% ABV) is hand-crafted at the City of Manchester Distillery, flavoured with a Duerr’s classic strawberry jam.
The result is a sweet and sticky, strawberry jam gin that is great paired with Double Dutch tonic or as part of a summer cocktail.

This one-of-a-kind Neon Creations’ Manchester Bee sign is the perfect gift for anyone wishing to show off their pride for our city.
The Bolton-based business previously raffled their very first bee creation to raise money for the We Love Manchester emergency following the tragic attack at Manchester Arena. It proved so popular they are now on general sale.

Manchester Bee Paper Straws
The Manchester Bee paper straw was part of a Greater Manchester initiative to eradicate avoidable single-use plastics in the region by 2020.
It was designed in collaboration with the GMCA (Greater Manchester Combined Authority) and it is a cost effective, sustainable alternative to plastic.
The straws are now commercially available to anyone, fitting in with the city’s resilience and work ethic.
