Isle of Wight Distillery

Welcome to the Isle of Wight Distillery.

The first and only distilling license has been granted to the Isle of Wight Distillery, based at Rosemary Vineyard. There are no known records or history of distilling on the Island so we are proud to make history. We use local ingredients from locations such as the Southern Coast and even handpick a number of seeds to create our range of spirits.

Our first came with the Isle of Wight Gin, called Wight Mermaids Gin, followed by Rock Sea Vodka – the first and only vodka brewed and distilled here on the Isle of Wight. We have also just launched our new range of Isle of Wight Apple Pie Moonshine, served in mini jam jars!

Our new HMS Victory Navy Strength Gin has now been launched together with our very special and limited edition Oak Aged release.

Our Oak Aged HMS Victory Gin first release is now here!

This new venture had been discussed for years between Conrad Gauntlett and Xavier Baker. With a combined 30 year’s of vine growing & wine production and 20 year’s brewing experience respectively, both have a keen interest in alcohol production. Distilling was really the next logical step. Whilst brewing in Ireland, Xavier took an interest in the arts of distilling poitín and gaining a better understanding of Irish whisky production. He then went on to travel to Scotland to learn their methods.
