The best origin stories are either born out of lifelong passion or a moment of epiphany - For me, it was somewhere between.
A friend of mine owns an orchard in Dorset. It was Autumns spent here, picking and milling apples that gave me the taste of production.
Making cider was fascinating, blending art with science, and really piqued my interest in fermentation.
In 2012, I was travelling along the East Coast of the US, when I was first exposed to great mead. Mead that was crafted with real love, care, and respect for the honey.
This really lit a fire in me, and I was determined to start making a modern mead in London. We've created the first London Meadery in over 500 years, and we spearheading the revival of mead in the UK and further afield. We are now selling to over nine countries worldwide.
