The Best Manchester Drinks on National Distillery Day

bar in manchester

May 22nd is National Distillery Day. Yes, we said distillery day. And, yes, we’re excited too – especially since it falls on a Saturday this year! Perfect timing to enjoy some of the best Manchester drinks at Stark Brewery if we do say so.

While Stark Brewing is most known for the largest selection of unique craft beer, the recent addition of the distillery has taken things to new levels! Not familiar with our offerings? That’s okay, we created this article just for you!


Stark Bourbon

On the rocks or in our signature old-fashioned, Stark Bourbon provides an exceptionally smooth experience. With smokey oak flavors combined with hints of vanilla and caramel, this 100 proof bourbon is a fine way to kick back at the end of the day!

Whether you’re stopping in to enjoy a few cocktails or taking a bottle home, we promise you’ll be back for more! If enjoying Stark Bourbon at home, here is an easy old fashioned recipe to try:


  • 2 ounces of Stark Bourbon
  • A dash or two of bitters
  • ½ teaspoon of sugar, a sugar cube, or simple syrup
  • Orange twist

Start by mixing the sugar and bitters. Once dissolved, add your bourbon and ice. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Let’s talk Vodka.

Record breaking, handcrafted, 80 proof vodka that provides a hint of sweetness and zero burn. Do we have your attention yet?

Whether you’re a fan of vodka or not – Stark Vodka is not one to turn your back on. Besides, it’s one of the lowest calorie options, especially mixed with seltzer and your favorite citrus fruit!


And then, there’s Stark Rum.

Another summertime favorite is rum – especially when adding in the option of coconut rum. When traveling is still limited, there’s no better way to escape than with a Coconut Rum Punch. Don’t worry, you can thank us later!


  • Stark Coconut Rum
  • Pineapple Juice
  • Orange Juice
