Citrus Summer Sundowners Made Easy with New Mermaid Zest Gin

Citrus Summer Sundowners Made Easy with New Mermaid Zest Gin

Smooth yet complex, Mermaid Zest Gin is an aromatic infusion of summer citrus fruits and wild-foraged, coastal botanicals with our signature gin. Crafted for those Mermaid moments on warm evenings under sunset-painted skies, discover your new go-to spirit.

Mermaid Zest Gin blends grapefruit and cascade hops with island bergamot, lemon zest and rosemary, also known as ‘the dew of the sea’ from its Latin origin. The botanical mix is distilled and then infused with our signature gin, for a bright and fresh citrus spirit with a hint of sea air. The result is an infusion of coastal rock samphire and rosemary foraged from the island’s shores, with fruits grown in the Victorian walled garden of Victoria and Albert’s island home, Osborne House.

Inspired by our lush, verdant island, its seagrass beds and the natural world, Mermaid Zest Gin is encased in a classic, emerald green. Traditional of all Mermaid spirits, the bottle has been crafted from Venetian glass and features a sustainably sourced natural cork stopper, a compostable corn and potato starch seal and a recyclable, biodegradable paper label.

Our co-founder, Xavier Baker, said:

We are delighted to announce the launch of Mermaid Zest to gin lovers as it offers a slightly different but equally exciting taste profile to our original Mermaid Gin. Mermaid Zest encapsulates the Island sea breeze and is an exciting new addition to our gin portfolio, demonstrating great versatility and delicious served as a gin and tonic or in a more complex cocktail.

The aromatic grapefruit and zesty lemon notes complement the floral cascade hops and wild-foraged rosemary for a citrussy and herbaceous gin, ideal with tonic or in a refreshing spritz. Try our perfect serve or Zest Cocktail, crafted by our in-house mixologists, for a fresh and rejuvenating experience.
