WHAT better way to do some good this Christmas than going for some cocktails? The purpose-led folks at The Public Spirit have teamed up with some of the city’s best bars to feed local people in need by creating some stellar drinks this December.
Six fantastic venues across the city are involved with every cocktail sold throughout the month supporting local heroes Eat Well MCR to help feed vulnerable people here in the city.
Each venue has crafted their own creation using The Public Spirit’s silky smooth rum and will be running the specials for a month including the Cherry Princess by the Jane Eyre at Escape to Freight Island and The Public Pomander by Cheadle cocktail bar Inventory.
The activation features venues across the city from Ancoats to Sale and every bottle sold on the trail will help support Eat Well, including a donation from every cocktail sold at each venue – so you can be sure every drink will do lots of good.
Kathleen O’Connor from Eat Well said, ”It really is wonderful to see the Manchester hospitality community coming together yet again to help provide meals to people in need this winter. Times are tough right now so we’re very grateful for any additional support. I should add that the cocktails sound amazing – we can’t wait to try them!”

Eat Well MCR is a collective of Manchester-based chefs that provide meals to people living in challenging circumstances. Launched by Mary-Ellen McTague in April 2020, they have now provided over 75,000 meals across Greater Manchester and are targeting 100,000 as their next milestone.
This activation marks their first collaboration with The Public Spirit who are also on a mission to feed local people. The conscious Ancoats-based brand produce rum and vodka with every bottle they sell providing four meals to those in need.

The complete list of venues involved in the activation are: Cane & Grain (Northern Quarter), Science & Industry (Northern Quarter), The Jane Eyre at Escape to Freight Island (Piccadilly), Speak in Code (Deansgate), Inventery (Cheadle), and Dutch Courage (Sale).

The activation will run throughout the month and you can follow The Public Spirit’s website and social channels for updates: @the_publicspirit
