I was greeted with a virtual geyser of fizz on opening this one. Whether warm or chilled, this is a lively cyser (honey cider or mead with apples). This comes from the Manchester-based Zymurgorium “craft” meadery, distillery, brewery and cidery.
Zymurgorium is a meadery, gin distilery based in Greater Manchester. It was founded by Aaron Darke, who calls himself “Zymurgorium Proprietor and Big Cheese”. He claims to have got the idea after brewing a lot for people at university and that he forages for his ingredients himself.
The meadery takes its name from Zymurgy — the branch of chemistry concerned with brewing and fermentation — and Emporium.
In addition to mead, they make a substantial number of other drinks:
So, Manchester’s “first and presently only craft distillery” is worth a try as the meads they produce are very interesting in character and they explore flavours you don’t tend to find in other meads.
