Mead is the most ancient of all alcoholic drinks, dating back thousands of years! Here, the Brazilian organic honey is diluted with water, fermented and then sweetened with more honey before filtration and bottling. You can taste the beautiful pure honey and it has a lemony finish (not too sweet). Getting organic honey from England is very difficult as its near impossible to keep bees out of flying range (3 miles) of conventional agriculture.
Pennard, run by husband and wife team Hilary and Hugh Tripp, was established near Glastonbury way back in 1981 (even before Vintage Roots!) as an organic vineyard on just half an acre. Following national awards, they continued, expanding into liqueurs, meads and ciders.
