Isle of Wight Distillery’s Mermaid Gin is now available to purchase from World Duty Free at Southampton Airport.

With the airport welcoming over 2 million passengers through its doors each year, World Duty Free is the highest profile retail outlet for Mermaid Gin.

The new retail agreement was officially launched this week with the help of a real life mermaid – and it’s already proving to be one of the airport’s bestselling local spirits.
