Mermaid Gin uses an infusion of carefully selected botanicals including Juniper Berries, rock samphire that is hand-picked from the Island‚Äôs chalk cliffs and Boadicea hops grown at the famous Ventnor Botanic Garden. Along with English coriander seeds, fresh lemon zest, angelica root, liquorish root, orris root, elderflower and grains of paradise.
They use hand-picked ingredients such as Rock Samphire from a secret location on the sunny south side of the Island. All the hops they use are grown on the Island too! We want our spirits to be not only fresh, but to capture the true island spirit! Their Coriander seeds are the first to be commercially grown in England.
Made from rye on Jonathan Adnams farm in Suffolk, the gin has added Japanese Match tea and lemongrass as well as the base botanicals of orange peel, ginger, Grains of Paradise, Cubeb Berries and Angelica all adding complexity and a subtle spiceness to the gin.
