Best Distilleries In Britain – The Isle of Wight Distillery Proud To Be Certified B Corporation !

We have some incredibly exciting news to shout about if you follow the best distilleries in Britain. Our friends at The Isle of Wight Distillery are now proud to be Certified B Corporation !

Join us in congratulating them being the first business on the Island to gain accreditation but not only that, the 13th distillery in the whole of the UK have also ranked the highest scoring gin distillery in England to date.

The producers of high quality and hand-crafted spirits, Mermaid Gin and Mermaid Salt Vodka, achieved this status having relaunched Mermaid Gin 3 years ago in a strikingly sculpted, plastic-free and fully recyclable bottle. The distillery is now in the process of setting its near-term science-based targets, to eliminate and reduce its emissions.

Achieving B Corp Certification was granted by meeting and exceeding rigorous benchmarks across several categories of the B Impact Assessment including Community, Customers, Environment, Governance and Workers.This involved working with employees and customers to reach a high level of inclusion and working with
its supply chain to achieve transparency and accountability. Our friends met the criteria independently and unusually, without guidance from external consultants, another achievement in itself.

“Since our inception in 2014, the team at the Isle of Wight Distillery have been committed to the
environmentally friendly production of spirits and the preservation of our island and marine environment,”

 

“We want to use our brand as a force for good within
the local community and are delighted to join a community of B Corp businesses that have been recognised
for their commitment to operate in a way that has a positive impact on the planet”.

Comments from Xavier Baker, co-founder, Mermaid Gin.

 

Mermaid Gin is also working with the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust to monitor and restore seagrass meadows in the waters.  As well as financially supporting the project, the team take part in surveys and beach clean-ups, working as ‘Marine Champions’ for the Trust. They’re also working with Surfers against Sewage (SAS) a national marine conservation and campaigning charity tackling plastic pollution and protecting the UK’s coastline for people to enjoy safely
and sustainably.

The iconic Mermaid bottle is crafted from 100% natural materials, designed to be reused and plastic-free. The glass bottle is decorated with biodegradable paint and features an all-natural cork with a wooden
top. The neck tag is recyclable and the tamperproof seal is made from corn and potato starch, which composts in food waste within 6-12 weeks. As well as putting environmental sustainability at the core of its operation, the distillery has a strong focus on the community.
