Mead

Nectar of the gods, mead is the oldest alcoholic beverage known to man. It has been associated with good health and vitality for thousands of years. When combining honey and water, the naturally occurring yeast in honey burst into life and convert the sugars into alcohol. This creates a slightly sweet drink with distinct honey notes.

We are stockists of sparkling meads from the Nothumberland Honey Co. and a select range of still meads from the Lancashire Mead Company.

On the taste a real complex hit of dry initially, with a rich honey finish. Serve: Chilled

  • Rhubarb Mead

    The second flavour to come from the mind of Mrs Mead over at THe Lancashire Mead Company. Born from a conversation about limoncello and other ‘sharp’ fruits. It has pure Rhubarb concentrate added after the fermentation process. This gives it a nice rhubarb flavour with a slightly sharp edge.  Suitable for those who like fruity drinks but still want to taste the mead or prefer their mead not quite so sweet.

  • Viking’s Blood Mead

    This mead is a ‘melomel’ (fruited honey mead), using blossom honey. It is also wild fermented (no yeast is added), but uses the yeast in the fruit. It has fresh hedgerow berries (blueberry, blackcurrant and blackberry) added to the fermentation process.

    The addition of berries gives it a smooth and deceptive, almost alcohol-free taste – despite its percentage!

  • ÆGIR

    This mead is a ‘Tannined Melomel’ (fruited honey mead) and follows the most traditional ‘basic’ mead recipe. The amazing flavour is achieved by simply adding tea and orange juice to the fermentation process.

    The addition of orange juice and tea gives the tannined, full bodied flavour, a slightly softer and fruitier taste, making it a firm favourite with drinkers across the board.
