About the brand...
The Mediaeval original Monastic Recipe of Norfolk Punch contains herbs of great strength and potency, that were immersed and soaked in natural underground waters of Benedictine Monks Welle Manor Hall in Norfolk, England around 974 A.D. Henry VIII dispelled the monastic orders, but fortunately the monks, who were one of the few educated groups were able to record the formula.
This recipe remained hidden for centuries, until its discovery in 1980 by Eric St. John-Foti, who had purchased Welle Manor Hall in order to restore it. Norfolk Punch derived its name from the 80 gallon "Puncheon" in which it was originally made. The herbs in it are carefully ground by hand with a stone mortar and pestle in accordance with the original old recipe, The formula also calls for picking certain herbs at particular phases of the moon.
