Mermaid Salt Vodka
The perfect vodka for a Salty Dog cocktail drink recipe has to be Mermaid Salt Vodka from The Isle of Wight Distillery.
The Isle of Wight Distillery is the islands first and only distillery. They craft and produce a range of spirits inspired by their surroundings. Often using locally sourced ingredients to enhance their spirits.
They’re passionate about sustainability, conservation and giving back to the islands economy.

How to make a Salty Dog Cocktail
Just follow these simple instructions to make this easy vodka cocktail recipe
- First up – rub the rim of the glass with the grapefruit slice to create a damp glass edge.
- Next – twist the dampened glass rim in the little pile of salt to create a salty rim.
- Then pour 50ml Mermaid Salt Vodka into the glass, top up with the pink grapefruit juice and stir gently.
- I like to drop in a couple of ice cubes – but it’s just as good without, so it’s personal preference really.
