As well as our on-line shop we supply Tipsy Wight® vodkas and vodka liqueurs to a select number of retailers and venues across the Isle of Wight and mainland. A selection of some of our favourite outlets is shown below.
English Heritage stock Tipsy Wight vodkas and vodka liqueurs, along with a range of gift packages and shot glasses at three historic monuments across the island:-
Osborne House, East Cowes. The country retreat of Queen Victoria, Osborne House is an absolutely delightful location. Be sure to visit Swiss Cottage down by the water's edge and Queen Victoria's very own bathing platfom.
Carisbrooke Castle. A magnificent castle clinging to a rock close to Newport, the main town on the isalnd. This is the perfect English castle with battlements, a moat and amazing views across the island. They even have their own donkey powered well.
Yarmouth Castle. A tiny little castle nestling between the ferry connecting Lymington and the New Forest with the island and the famous George Inn.
Quarr Abbey is a delightful Benedictine Monastary, home to a small group of Benedictine monks since 1907, and originally settled by the French monks of Solesmes, in voluntary exile from France. Prior to their arrival Quarr Abbey House was frequently visited by Queen Victoria, and her youngest daughter Beatrice honeymooned there after marrying on the the island. There have been many famous visitors over the years, including the writer Robert Graves, who mentions Quarr Abbey in 'Goodbye to all that.'
Today Quarr Abbey is a thriving visitor attraction, with a magnificent apiary, tea shop, gardens, pig farm and rescue centre for former battery farmed hens.

We love this place. A bustling and happy farm run by the Griffin family and home to a wonderful herd of 140 Guernsey cows. Fifteen Guernsey cows were brought across the downs to Briddlesford in 1923 and the current herd is descended from this original stock. They produce a rich creamy milk known locally as Buttercup Milk which has won many national awards. The farm has a thriving farm shop and cafe which stocks Tipsy Wight Vodka.
A delightful pocket sized ale house and shop in Holyrood Street, right in the heart of Newport. They have a similar and equally friendly ale house in Cowes High Street. There are always a range of excellent real ales on offer and we guarantee you will get into conversation with someone in the delightful one roomed pub. Tipsy Wight is available in their shop right next door.
Award winning former dairy farm that has diversified into leisure activities, and have a brliiant play area for children, restaurant, bar and huge gift shop. The views are truly spectacular, and this is rapidly becoming one of the island's go to destinations run with enthusiasm and skill by the next generation of this island farming family. They still breed youngstock for their mainland dairy farm and grow maize.
Busy and successful farm run with quiet efficiency by the Browngigg family. They have a flock of over a thousand sheep and free-range hens producing over 1000 eggs per day for the island market. They have a bustling farmshop and cafe with lots of goodies, amazing sausages and of course Tipsy Wight!
Brading is seriously like really, really old. No honestly. There is a gorgeous Roman Villa on the outskirts and the town itself boasts some of the oldest buildings on the island. Although hard to believe now, it was in fact an important harbour until the C.16th Century with ships moored along what is now the High Street. Rectory Mansion is a former Tudor pub, The Crown, that victualled the Royal Fleet. For many years it was the home of a slightly creepy but strangely beguiling waxworks museum, a sort of poor cousin twice removed of Madame Tussards. Today it is a thriving restaurant and shop and a delightful place to pause on a visit to this fascinating part of East Wight.
Snuggled away in the West Wight, equidistant between Freshwater and Ventnor, Brighstone is a pretty village, the largest village in an area of outstanding beauty that also includes the equally lovely Mottistone and Brook. Brighstone Village Stores is in the heart of the village, indeed is the heart of the village, and has been run with pitch perfect efficiency and great style by the Hollis family since 1976.
Deep down in the south of the Island, Chale is a pretty village with a lovely village green, situated north of Niton. Chale Green Stores and Post-Office have been serving the local community for over 100 years, and has recently had a major overhaul with the addition of a new delicatessan, cafe and courtyard garden.
Completely stunning harbour, and the first town on the Isle of Wight to be granted a Royal Charter in 1135. Yarmouth Harbour is loved by the yachting fraternity for it's friendly staff, unique mooring system (essentially you raft up next to a complete stranger and make lifelong friends), and beautiful scenery. The recently upgraded Harbour Office has a coffee shop and sells a range of island products, including Tipsy Wight. A favourite first port of call for our neighbours from France and a compelling introduction to the island for millions of European sailors.
