Hand-crafted on the Isle of Wight since 2014 using ten ethically sourced botanicals, Mermaid Gin delivers a smooth yet complex blend of fresh organic lemon zest and peppery grains of paradise, with a hint of sea air from wild-foraged, fragrant rock samphire. A refreshing and invigorating serve for the free-spirited.
From wandering along sunkissed beaches to diving into the ocean, there’s an element out there that helps each one of us capture our essence. By combining nature, adventure and purpose, we embrace our true selves, and when the sun sets on our wildest journeys, there’s a Mermaid moment waiting.
Mermaid Gin is the featured gin from Isle of Wight Distillery on 29th & 30th March.
