A beautiful mermaid that wants to settle down at your home bar.

Just off the south coast of England lies the unique Isle of Wight, the largest island in England. It's quite stunning over there, with all the beautiful nature and the sandy beaches, dotted with vintage beach huts, but also, for the more paleontologically inclined, there's dinosaur remains and fossils! And there's exactly one distillery – the Isle of Wight Distillery.

Founded by Xavier and Conrad, the distillery works as one with the island. Minimizing waste by eliminating plastic and using biodegradable materials instead, ethically sourcing local ingredients, and protecting the island’s marine environment, they really do everything they can to make sure their beloved Isle of Wight remains as untouched as possible.

Their Mermaid Gin is just as sexy as it sounds. Its lead botanical is ‘mermaid’s kiss’ a.k.a. rock samphire that gives it a breath of sea air – it’s an aromatic succulent that grows on the cliffs around the Island and marks the high tide line. You can imagine how happy you must be when kissed by this particular succulent when you’re a shipwrecked sailor, struggling to climb ashore. And there’s 9 other botanicals that help create the magic – elderflower from local fields, Boadicea hops from Ventnor Botanic Gardens, the classic juniper, liquorice root, orris root, grains of paradise, organic lemon zest, English coriander, and angelica root. Plus, let’s be honest, the blue bottle with mermaid scales is a darn sexy thing to have on your shelf.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Mermaid Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Mermaid Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
