Smirnoff, the official Vodka of the Isle of Wight Festival

Smirnoff, the world’s no.1 vodka brand, is proud to be the official vodka partner of the biggest festivals across Europe this summer including the Isle of Wight Festival.

Smirnoff, infamous since 1864. There’s vodka, then there’s Smirnoff.


Back in 1873 a young entrepreneur named Gerard Heineken discovered a passion for brewing. He built a brewery in Amsterdam and set about perfecting the recipe that would soon become Holland’s first ‘premium’ lager beer. Word quickly spread and the name Heineken, stamped onto every single bottle, became a national symbol of quality. Over the next 140 years his brewery expanded, but the name on the bottle always remained the same.

At the heart of Heineken’s success lie pure, natural ingredients: malted barley, water, hops and a small but significant extra called A-Yeast. Heineken’s unique A-Yeast is responsible for the rich balanced taste and subtle fruity notes that distinguish every single Heineken. Over the years our master brewers continued to perfect their craft.

It’s been 140 years since Heineken has been able to call itself a microbrewer. And while we’re proud that 25 million Heineken’s are served each day across 192 countries, we’ve never forgotten that the quality is measured not in the size of your brand but in the purity of your beer. Cheers!

So if you’re looking for somewhere to hang out with friends, burn some quality time and truly own your festival experience, just look for the Strongbow Archer. You can’t miss him.
