Mermaid Gin – Miniature Gift Set (42% 3x5cl)
A fantastic gin gift containg 3 x 5cl bottle of Mermaid Gins’ award winning gin in a branded gift box. Mermaid Gin is a beautiful and unique bottle design made at the Isle of Wight Distillery, the first and only distillery on the island.
Isle of Wight signature gin’s name was inspired by its lead botanical rock samphire, known locally as ‘mermaid’s kiss’. This aromatic succulent clings to the cliffs surrounding the Island and marks the high tide line on its majestic beaches. Like the kiss of the mythical mermaid, saving sailors lost at sea, the rock samphire was a signal that shipwrecked sailors and smugglers were safe from the raging seas. Mermaid Gin has notes of zesty lemon underpinned by peppery spicy noted and a deep, well-rounded mouthfeel, enhanced with rock samphire in a long complex finish
