A rainy afternoon and what could be better than stumbling over the Isle of Wight Distillery!….nothing in my view!
Close to Seaview on the Isle of Wight the distillery is an ideal location whatever the weather to while away an afternoon tasting gin and learning a little about its manufacture.
The tiny distillery can be viewed from the Wishing Well bar and every now and then a staff member will chat to the visitors and answer questions about the distilling process.
I tasted Mermaid and Victory Gin, finding the Victory a stronger taste than Mermaid but both slipped down a treat. I mixed the Victory with a Refreshingly light Fevertree tonic and was very impressed with the outcome. Although not a vodka girl I tasted the Rock Sea Vodka and am now open to conversion!
I stayed at the Seaview Hotel which is short drive away and the Distillery can be found on Pondwell Hill, Seaview.
