MERCHELLE the mermaid was on hand at Southampton Airport to offer passengers a taste of Mermaid Gin from the Isle of Wight.
The Isle of Wight Distillery, which makes Mermaid Gin, has signed a deal with international retailer World Duty Free to sell it at the airport.
More than two million passengers pass through its doors every year, making it a high profile sales opportunity for the Isle of Wight business.
Xavier Baker, of the Isle of Wight Distillery, said: “We are extremely pleased and proud to have our flagship product on display at Southampton Airport. This is great opportunity to show the whole world what the Isle of Wight can produce and really put ourselves on the map.”
