Gosnells Sparkling Mead Tasting - 5th August

Medium

Gosnells of London will be taking over our Forecourt with their Sparkling Meads.

When: Friday 5th August 3pm – 5pm

Where: Noble Green Forecourt

Gosnells of London are an independent drinks company based in Peckham. They are London's first Meadery in over 500 years! We are now stocking 4 of their sparkling meads: Hopped, Sour, Hibiscus and Wildflower.

Gosnells use 100% natural honey and are on a mission to support sustainable biodeversity to maintain their honey supply so, they have created a Mead Garden where they have planted nectar-rich flowers, shrubs and trees🐝

Mead is made when honey and water are fermented together. Gosnells choose to add different flavours to make their sparkling meads more approachable and modern. They have a lower alcohol than traditional mead, making them the perfect refreshing summer drink🔆.

This event will be held in the forecourt of the shop from 3.00pm until 5.00pm on Friday 5th August.

Unlike our other tastings, this event is non-ticketed and will be free to attend.

So please come and join us to learn a bit more about Gosnells and their sparkling meads!
