Vodka scales up across country

ISLE of Wight Distillery has given its Mermaid Salt Vodka a facelift ahead of rolling the spirit out across the UK.

The vodka, which is infused with locally-sourced sea salt, was already available on the island but will now be rolled out nationwide.

The 40% ABV spirit joins the distillery’s Mermaid Gin and Mermaid Pink Gin in the Mermaid range.

“This island is rich in amazing ingredients which we love to use – whether it’s the rock samphire and Boadicea hops in our signature gin, or the addition of local strawberries to Mermaid Pink,” said Xavier Baker, co -founder of Isle of Wight Distillery.

“This, however, was the first time we ventured into the surrounding seas for an ingredient.

“Perfect on its own over ice or with a mixer, it also really layers on a unique savoury element for cocktails that you just can’t get with other vodkas.“
