Wight Vodka Distribution Confirmed


London, England

50° North have signed with two companies on the Isle of Wight to distribute Wight Vodka to the Island’s finest bars, restaurants and hotels. The company is proud to announce that Eurovines in Seaview and Medina Wines in Yarmouth have agreed to distribute Wight Vodka on the Island.

“This spring, we took the time to listen to our current customers’ requests and met with the Island’s best distributors of fine wines, champagnes and spirits” commented Ritu Manocha, Director at 50° North. “We chose to work with both Medina Wines and Eurovines and are extremely pleased that they are representing Wight Vodka. The relationships that we have entered into are very strong, and we’re delighted that we can partner with two of the Island’s finest companies.”

Rodney Kearns, owner of Medina Wines, said “I have been working in the wine and spirits industry for my entire life, and have to say that Wight Vodka has the opportunity of growing into a true, international brand. It is an extremely high-quality spirit, targeting the elite as well as those who simply love the ocean. Wight Vodka has the short- and long-term potential of making the Isle of Wight and Great Britain proud.”

Tim Flint, owner of Eurovines in Seaview, also has high expectations of the product. “At Eurovines, we specialise in bringing high-quality brands of wines, champagnes and spirits from around the world onto our Island. Wight Vodka is of such an extreme quality, being seven times distilled, that vodka connoisseurs are already walking into our shop saying that they love it. In time, this vodka will be seen around the world’s premier yachting venues and we can revel in the fact that it all started here.”

“The agreements with Eurovines and Medina Wines are the beginning of something great,” commented Manocha. “With the extremely positive feedback that we are all hearing, the Wight Vodka brand is gaining perfect recognition.”
