What was the former site of the Wishing Well pub, is opening its doors tonight as the new home of the Isle of Wight Distillery. The ‘Mermaid’ has been completely transformed into a fully working distillery complete with a cocktail bar and shop for all your gin and vodka needs! Visitors will be able to sip cocktails from a classic G&T or Bloody Mary, to more complex cocktails.
As well as enjoying a drink, you will also be able to view the inner workings of the distillery through a glass wall. Here you can watch the distilling process in all its glory, then have a tipple of the good stuff after.
A new on-site shop will stock everything in the Distillery’s range. All are welcome to the launch event taking place tonight (Wednesday 31st January) between 18:00 and 23:00 tonight. The Mermaid will be open through February on Wednesday-Sunday 11:00 to 15:00 then 18:00 to 23:00. From March onwards ‘Mermaid’ will be open daily from 11:00 to 23:00.
