Traditional Mead UK


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.
