The Boscawens have been farming the fields around Mereworth – or Marourde, to give it its historic name – for over 250 years. Over the centuries, their hops and apples have gone into many of England’s finest beers and ciders. More recently, they’ve turned to growing grapes in Kent’s remarkable soil. Booze, you could say, is in the blood.
While Mereworth Wines is concentrating on sparkling wine, it seemed somehow inevitable that William Boscawen would re-trace his family’s passion for fermentation back to its earliest origins; the fermentation of honey and water. From this love affair, MAROURDE was born.
MAROURDE is brewed in-house at Brewers Hall Oast, taking inspiration from local botanicals and honey from the 70 hives on the Estate.
MAROURDE ‘Spritz’ is medium-dry and bursts with citrus, honey flavours, complimented by woody undertones, with a bright, crisp finish. By popular demand, the newly created ‘Rosé Spritz’ explodes with honied hedgerow black fruits, allowing the delicate infusions of elderflower and elderberry to linger on the palate.
