Mermaid Gin Review

Saturday, 9 May 2020


Once again, I’ve teamed up with Mermaid Gin to bring you a full review of their finest original Mermaid gin!
As mentioned in my review of their beautiful Mermaid Pink Gin, I am by no means, a gin connoisseur but I do have a strong appreciation for a good gin! Without further ado, let the review commence!

The Mermaid Gin is the Isle of Wight Distillery's signature gin. The name is inspired by one of the botanicals within the gin, rock samphire. Rock samphire is locally known as 'Mermaid's Kiss'. Rock Samphire is often found clung to cliffs surrounding the Isle of Wight and marks the high tide line on it's beaches.

Notes which are also found in Mermaid Gin are Boadicea hops, juniper, coriander seeds, fresh lemon zest, grains of paradise, angelica, liquorice, orris and elderflower. With no added sugar, and the fact the gin is both gluten free and fully vegan means that it is very inclusive!

Much like the Mermaid Pink Gin, the bottle is also plastic-free and 100% recyclable. The distillery has worked hard to eliminate plastic and bubble wrap, plus plastic sealing tape from its production processes. I'm a big supporter of the fact that lots of care has been put into creating a fabulous gin whilst also ensuring the packaging is less harmful to our oceans and environment. Every factor has been thought of!

I really enjoyed the taste of this gin, it wasn't synthetic tasting which is what I find a lot of gin's taste like. I'd definitely recommend it, for the taste and for the beautiful recyclable packaging! Based on the amount of care which has gone into the product and packaging alike, I do think it is worth a slightly larger price tag of £37.75! You can buy your own bottle at Master of Malt, John Lewis and Partners, or one of their other stockists!

Have you tried Mermaid Original Gin before? I'd love to know your thoughts!

XOXO Molly
