The United Kingdom has had a bruising week and so where better to seek a place for quiet reflections than Scalloway. Here, a resident, Alistair Morgan, is planning to set up an operation to produce his brew, Viking Mead, on a commercial scale. This is a drink based upon fermented honey and each brew requires some 200 - 300 kilos of the sweet food made by bees foraging for nectar from flowers. It does sound soothing. Read about his plans in Shetland News, the source of the pun in today's blog title.
