Mermaid Zest Gin 70cl 40% ABV
Mermaid Zest Gin
Mermaid Zest Gin is a zesty, aromatic infusion of Mermaid Gin with summer citrus fruits and wild foraged, coastal botanicals. Grapefruit and cascade hops are blended with island bergamot, lemon zest and rosemary, ‘the dew of the sea’, then distilled and infused with our signature gin. The result is a zesty, fresh spirit with a hint of sea air.
Inspired by the lush, verdant island, its seagrass beds and the natural world, Mermaid Zest Gin is encased in a classic, emerald green. Infused with coastal rock samphire and rosemary foraged from the island’s shores, with fruits grown in the Victorian walled garden of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s island home, Osborne House.
A smooth, refreshing and complex gin with a zesty tone. Bright and fresh grapefruit on the nose, with gentle juniper. A citrus zing combined with a subtle sweetness with herbal notes. A long, layered and complex finish rounds off the experience with a well-rounded mouthfeel.

In the Solent – the stretch of water between the Isle of Wight and mainland Britain – seagrass meadows spread across the ocean floor. These incredible plants sequester carbon at an astounding rate and shelter a wealth of wildlife, creating ecosystems beneath the waters. It’s estimated that 92% of these meadows have been lost over the last 100 years, damaged by pollution, human activity, reduced water quality, disease, and the effects of climate change. So Mermaid are working with the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust to monitor and restore these meadows in the waters surrounding their island home.
