Introduction to mead making

Introduction to mead making

About the Course

Join Thomas O’Hagan at Trill Farm to learn all about turning the hard work of our noble honeybees into delicious mead or honey-wine.

This course will include fermenting honey with wild yeast, going on a tasting journey through the history and styles of mead from the British Isles and beyond, and starting off a few small batches of your own mead to take home, nurture and enjoy.

We will be exploring exciting honey, making mead cocktails and foraging ingredients from the farm to use in our meads.

We hope that you will spend a relaxing day with us savouring delicious meads, reconnecting with this ancient tradition, and leaving with all the skills needed to continue your mead journey at home.

Please note that you must be over 18 years of age to attend this course.
