The Isle of Wight Distillery introduces Mermaid Zest Gin

The Isle of Wight Distillery is set to launch a limited-edition grapefruit and Cascade hop gin to its Mermaid spirits range.

The new “smooth and refreshing” London dry gin, named Mermaid Zest Gin, is packaged in an emerald green scaled bottle and is the fourth addition to the line-up, which already includes: Mermaid Gin, Mermaid Pink Gin and Mermaid Salt Vodka.

Mermaid Zest Gin is “produced in harmony with the Island’s coastal elements” and is “enhanced with grapefruit and Cascade hops and gently infused with Island bergamot, lemon zest and wild-foraged coastal rosemary, to produce a light yet complex zesty tone with a subtle sweetness and herbal notes”.

The distiller revealed that Mermaid Zest Gin “features the ‘dew of the sea’, coastal rosemary foraged from the Island’s shores” and “is also made with fruits grown in the Victorian walled garden of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s Osborne House”.

Xavier Baker, co-founder of Mermaid Gin explained, “Mermaid Zest Gin is a blend of citrus and herbaceous ingredients, with our signature ‘hint of sea air’ from foraged rock samphire. It’s an exciting new addition to our gin portfolio, demonstrating great versatility and delicious served as a gin and Mediterranean tonic or in a more complex cocktail.”

Mermaid Zest Gin is bottled at 40% ABV and is set to retail at £39.90. It will officially launch at Junipalooza Gin Festival on 11 and 12 June at Tobacco Dock, London, but will be also be available from John Lewis, Isle of Wight Distillery, Spirits Kiosk and Enotria & Coe.
