Eagle-eyed moviegoers may spot an Isle of Wight product in the background of the latest Bond film, No Time to Die.
During a bar scene in Cuba, 007 orders a Vodka Martini – shaken, not stirred. Sitting on the shelf behind him are 2 bottles of Mermaid Gin and Mermaid Pink Gin, which are both distilled on the outskirts of Ryde.
In celebration of the launch of the new James Bond film, Isle of Wight Distillery has come up with the suggestion of a Mermaid Vesper Martini.
Smooth and sophisticated, there’s nothing quite like a Bond-inspired Vesper Martini. Breaking with convention, shaken, not stirred, is the only way to go. The Mermaid take on the classic Vesper uses lime, instead of lemon, for a zesty kick that pairs beautifully with Mermaid Salt Vodka.
60ml Mermaid Gin | 20ml Mermaid Salt Vodka | 15ml White Vermouth
Garnish: Lime Peel
Add all ingredients to a shaker filled with ice. Give it a vigorous shake and strain into a glass and garnish with lime peel.
