our story

In 1919 a local Alderman named Fletcher Moss gifted the botanical gardens of Parsonage Gardens & Fletcher Moss to the people of his beloved northern city. He had a vision: the gardens would provide a place of inspiration for future generations, create a sanctuary for local people to escape the hustle of city life, a platform for young love to blossom… and then there was gin! 

Local gin enthusiasts Liam Manton & Mark Smallwood have created Alderman’s Drinks Ltd. and launched Didsbury Gin, taking inspiration from the fine gardens, whilst infusing modern botanicals to create a refreshing citrus twist on a classic London Dry Gin.
