Mermaid Gin 70cl
Mermaid founders Xavier and Conrad set up the Isle of Wight's first ever distillery in 2014. One a brewer, one a distiller , their approach is to cut the gin at the perfect moment, capturing just the 'hearts' of each batch - the sweet spot of any distillation. Using the hearts and a column still, they're able to create the remarkably smooth, yet complex gin that is Mermaid. Mermaid gin is hand crafted using ten ethically sourced botanicals. A smooth yet complex blend of fresh organic lemon zest, the peppery notes in grains of paradise and a hint of sea air from fragrant rock samphire, locally known as 'mermaids kiss' as it grows just above the sea's high-tide line. Profits from this gin are used to support marine conservation projects.
