The Isle of Wight Distillery, producers of high quality and hand-crafted spirits, Mermaid Gin, MermaidSalt Vodka, and Mermaid Spiced Rum, is delighted to announce an exciting three-year partnership with Prometheus Sailing, one of the UK’s leading yacht charter companies based along the South Coast of England. The Isle of Wight Distillery is also confirmed as the sponsor for The Sail to Reward Regatta, a new event bringing teams together from the hotel and hospitality sector.
As part of the ongoing three-year partnership with B Corp certified Isle of Wight Distillery, Prometheus Sailing have renamed one of their one-design Jeanneau 410 charter yachts Mermaid Spirit, which will fly a new spinnaker with the Mermaid branding.
Mermaid Spirit kicked off its summer yacht racing campaign last month competing in the annual Drinks Trade Regatta (20th May). Showing huge promise, the boat and crew, comprising of a team from drinks distributor, Matthew Clarke, competed against 13 other teams and finished in a very respectable third place.
Prometheus Sailing have delivered high quality corporate hospitality events and team building activities for over 30 years and their fleet of yachts, moored in Port Solent on the South Coast, will use the award-winning Mermaid collection in all events. Those taking part will be treated to Mermaid Gin on board and have the opportunity to taste all Mermaid spirits at pre-sail and after-sail drinks when chartering Prometheus Sailing yachts. Mermaid G&T’s will be served at all welcome parties before Prometheus Sailing regattas and Mermaid will be the after-sail drink served during Cowes Week Regatta for all Prometheus Sailing charter yachtsmen. Successful sailors will take home a bottle of Mermaid as part of their prize.
The Isle of Wight Distillery is also proud to be sponsoring one-day sailing regatta, The Sail To Reward Regatta on 19th June 2023.Staged from Ocean Village Marina and the Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa with the spectacular, modern fleet of Prometheus Sailing 41.0 yachts, the regatta promises a great day of yacht racing whilst raising valuable funds for the Room to Reward Charity. This unique volunteer-recognition charity was created to say ‘thank you’ to the Hidden Heroes, the inspirational volunteers who give up their time to make a difference to those who need it most. The winning team of The Sail to Reward Regatta will be awarded the Mermaid Trophy, kindly sponsored by Mermaid Gin.
