About the Great British Mead Company
Simple. I started in dark age re-enactment and mead was the drink to have round the campfire. Before the internet, finding a bottle or two of Mead to pick up on the way involved detouring to a pre arranged off-licence who had some in stock.
How we started
As it happened, I knew a few bee keepers so making my own seemed the best option. Later, having moved over to Medieval re-enactment, Mead was still the drink to have, so I began to take a boot full, and when that wasn’t enough we moved on to having a stall.
As is often the case with home brewers, the under stairs cupboard is rapidly outgrown, and there is nothing like enthusiasm, so having progressed through a variety of spaces, now we have a commercial unit in order to keep up with demand and expand our range, and are now licensed to include retail and wholesale through the AWRS scheme
Having started at small fairs and seasonal events, we are moving online for postal sales and aim to fill the shelves of suitable retail outlets.
We are also aiming to expand our visibility to the wedding and events market
