Pennonia Meggyes is a dark burgundy with excellent flow and a rich, strong color. The ink is saturated but can still offer shading properties. The name translates simply to Sour Cherry and the creator chose it because he had a huge sour cherry tree in the garden during his childhood. He always liked how beautiful the tree was when it was full of fruit, the colors ranging from vivid red all the way to an almost complete black. Children used to hang the cherries on their ears and wore them as earrings. Ironically he never liked the taste of sour cherries.
"Meggy" refers to a type of cherry.
