Detailed Information

The name Portishead (a town recorded in the Domesday Book and affectionately known as Posset) derives from the ‘port at the head of the river’. The town’s centuries-old history is chronicled in a series of booklets – the Posset Pieces. Shakespeare mentions Posset in several of his plays. Originally a dessert enriched by alcohol, it was used as a medicinal remedy, served in a two-handled cup.
