Peckham bar Funkidory has launched a mead in collaboration with Gosnells of London Mead Company.

The limited edition mead bottling, which sees the addition of Ethiopian koserat leaf, is part of a drive by Funkidory’s co-owners, Sergio Leanza and Anna Fairhead-Benitez, to showcase local brands and businesses at their neighbourhood cocktail bar and record shop.

Leanza said: “Anna and I are so excited to announce this collaboration with Gosnells. We've known the team for some time and have always loved how they approach flavour and ingredients.

"To create this mead has been an absolute pleasure and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”

The Ethiopian Koserat leaf, which is slowly fermented and blended with a selection of blossom honeys, is said to offer “bold citrus and delicate herbal notes”.

The mead has been aged for three months before bottling. This results in a liquid that has a “slight tannin structure with a long, round and creamy mouthfeel”. It will be used in Funkidory’s twist on the classic Martini.
