Its really great to see a truly local and independent Didsbury venture take off, and this is clearly the case with Didsbury Gin.
Gin enthusiasts Liam Manton and Mark Smallwood took their inspiration for Didsbury Gin from the botanical gardens of Fletcher Moss & Parsonage, which were given to the village by Alderman Fletcher Moss.
From an initial experiment in the back room of Liams’s home, Didsbury Gin has now taken the drinks market by storm, with distribution in Harvey Nichols and Selfridges and praise from British Vogue, who recently hailed it ‘one of the most exciting new British gin brands’.Now hand-crafted in an eco-friendly copper in batches of 100 bottles, the flavours of the gin are inspired by the plants and flowers of the eponymous gardens, combining a blend of botanicals, fresh grapefruit, orange, lime and lemon peels, underpinned by British roots and aromas.
Didsbury Gin is a citrus take on a classic London Dry Gin.
They have plans to expand the brand in 2018, increasing the number of stockists and to grow in both the domestic and overseas market, and we wish them every success.
Property types are a handy measure of the shape of the market in a local area. For example, areas with lots of flats tend to be urban in character because there is huge pressure on land. A large number of detached homes means that the area is suburban and not very densely populated
We know we live in a great area, and because most people agree, demand has driven up house prices. But how do prices in our area stack up in terms of property types? This chart looks at the comparison over the last eight years.
We’ve included this chart to show the relative number of flats and houses selling in the last 11 months in our area. Due to the profile of the housing stock in the area, there’s nothing too surprising here, but it’s interesting to see how the different types of properties contribute to total sales levels.
