1. Mermaid Gin
Produced by the Isle of Wight Distillery, Mermaid Gin is a small-batch gin that is both environmentally conscious and luxurious.
Mermaid Gin is crafted with ten ethically-sourced botanicals, including juniper, coriander, elderflower, angelica root, and citrus zest. The result is a smooth and refreshing gin with a delicate balance of flavors. The juniper and coriander provide a classic gin taste, while the elderflower and citrus zest add a subtle sweetness and bright aroma. On the palate, there are hints of sea salt and seaweed, which are both unique and intriguing.
But what really sets Mermaid Gin apart is its commitment to sustainability. The Isle of Wight Distillery uses a carbon-neutral distillation process and sources the majority of their botanicals locally, reducing their carbon footprint. Additionally, the distillery supports marine conservation efforts by donating a portion of their profits to ocean-related causes.

These flavors combine to create a gin that is both complex and delicious.
