Escaping from the historical re-enactment area of the drinks cabinet, this alcoholic honey brew is crossing into the mainstream. It sweetens a warming toddy-style mix of calvados and cider at Reverend JW Simpson in Fitzrovia, and – the surest sign that it's becoming cool – an artisan producer has started making it in a London flat. Get yourself a bottle of Gosnell's London Mead for a Christmas tipple with a difference.
This delicious little invention is known as the B.A.F. and was created by mixologist Eryn Reece. Look at the ingredients in this delicious bastard.
