Isle of Wight Distillery & Mermaid Bar
Visit the Isle of Wight's only distillery and onsite Mermaid Bar near Ryde for tutored tastings and terrace-side tipples with views.
Welcome to the Isle of Wight’s first and only distillery, producing fabulous spirits and bottling them in beautiful sea-inspired bottles.
Founders Xavier and Conrad and their small team distil spirits in a eco-conscious way. Minimising waste, they use ethically sourced and often local ingredients to create their botanically imbued Mermaid gin. Like a dive into the deep, there’s no mistaking its distinctive, award-winning aqua-blue bottle.
Judges at the IWSC Awards love it so much, they just awarded it Gold at their latest 2021 awards, praising the “sea freshness, gentle samphire, and well-balanced, smooth mouthfeel”. We’ll raise a glass to that!
Also distilled here – with a whole lot of love – is the beautiful Mermaid pink gin. Oh, and Mermaid salt vodka, too, which you can buy from the distillery shop. And subject to availability, there are distillery talks and tastings. Our kind of outing…
Visit the distillery’s on-site Mermaid Bar on the outskirts of Ryde to sample the growing collection and watch the stills in action. Afterwards, enjoy a Mermaid and tonic (or two) on the terrace, with views across picturesque countryside.
