London’s only mead maker, Gosnell’s in Peckham, is holding its first ever ‘Mead Monday’ event in September, writes Jessie Kolvin…

Guests will be able to savour the company’s mead – an alcoholic beverage also known as honey wine – on its own and mixed in cocktails.

According to Tom Gosnell, the founder of London’s only mead brewery, the drink – believed to be the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage – is experiencing a resurgence in popularity.

He said: “The majority of our honey comes from Spanish orange groves, and this provides a consistent flavour profile, combining elements of sourdough bread, a certain richness and an edge of gentle orange.”

Made by fermenting honey with water, the Peckham variety aims to be “light, crisp and sparkling”.

The final product, 5.5% ABV, has already affectionately been dubbed “Peckham’s answer to prosecco”.

Perhaps, as Mr Gosnell says, “Mead’s time has come.”

The event will be held on Monday 3rd September at 6:00pm.
