Mermaid Gin is tailor-made for the untamed soul, the free spirit. It is a symphony of nature, purpose, and adventure that empowers you to embrace your authentic self. This gin is best enjoyed as the sun dips below the horizon, signaling the end of yet another adventure.
Since 2014, Mermaid Gin has been meticulously handcrafted in the UK, utilizing ethically sourced botanicals. Its namesake, ‘Mermaid’s Kiss,’ also known as rock samphire or sea fennel, is a delectable, flowering succulent.
‘Mermaid’s Kiss’ flourishes indigenously along the picturesque Isle of Wight, demarcating the high tide’s gentle embrace on its pristine shores. Local folklore tells how this plant once served as a guiding beacon for shipwrecked sailors and smugglers that they were now safely ashore.
What Flavor is Mermaid Gin?
Mermaid Gin is made up of smooth, invigorating, and intricately modern flavors. It has the delicate aromas of fresh citrus, sweet spices, and subtle juniper, to ignite your senses. You will taste the burst of citrus harmonizing with peppery nuances and an earthy sweetness, all kissed by a subtle sea breeze.
Is Mermaid Pink Gin Pink?
In addition to the flagship Mermaid Gin, Isle of Wight Distillery also produces Mermaid Pink Gin which has a rosy hue. Mermaid Pink Gin has a blend of strawberry and lemon giving it a special vibrancy. While it is not as sweet as many pink gins, it also has no added sugar.
Along with Mermaid Gin and Mermaid Pink Gin, there is also Mermaid Zest Gin and Mermaid Salt Vodka. Mermaid Zest Gin is a bright citrus-flavored gin made by infusing ingredients like wild-foraged coastal rosemary, island bergamot, and grapefruit. Mermaid Salt Vodka adds a pinch of locally sourced sea salt as the ultimate flavor enhancer.
