About the same time that oil was struck in West Pennsylvania, intrepid prospectors drilling in Philadelphia struck something far sweeter. They stood back in awe of the stream spouting from the well head, astonished at the delicious aroma that filled the air. Dipping their fingers into the liquid and tasting it, these lucky men realised they had discovered the world’s first honey bearing rocks; and the liquid pouring from the ground was pure honey. It didn’t take long before a tavern was built at the site, and the honey was transformed into a rich, golden mead that delighted everyone who drank it.
