7-17-18 We’re baaccckkk!! Tonight we have on the show Alison Heath, owner of Apothecary Mead in Sherwood Forest (yes, that one) in the UK.

Alison is the first female commercial meadery owner in the UK, and her meadery is a small artisan business, making cold-fermented mead over time. Her operation is on the historic Welbeck Estate in North Notthinghamshire.

Alison is huge into recycling her mead materials, and uses miminal electricity, and is also a beekeeper, so her meadery operation is very green.

Alison is also co-founder of the British Mead Makers Asociation, and a co-founder of the Mead Maidens’ Facebook group, set up to give female mead makers a place to congregate.

If you want us to tackle your mead making questions, you can send us a question and we’ll tackle it online!
