Our mead is handcrafted in West Cork in our family run meadery in Barrack Lane in Kinsale, the first Irish Meadery in 200 years.

Hazy Summer Mead

A light, fruity, melomel-style mead, a six berry celebration of long summer days. Honey muddled with a tumble of ripe summer berries. Strawberry and raspberry aromas with a beautiful rich pink colour. 11% ABV.

Blackberries, blackcurrants and cherries on the palate and blueberries and forest honey on the finish. It’s a glass full of summer. If you add frozen berries, they will keep your drink cool while not diluting your mead. Bonus, you can eat the berries afterwards too.

Each batch is mixed, fermented and matured with care and passion and attention to quality and sustainability.

We use pure honey, local water and yeast as well as carefully sourced fruits in our authentic meads. We don’t use a white wine base and no sugar is added.

Serve:Perfect served lightly chilled on its own or in a sharing jug with ice and frozen berries. Like a glass of summer in any weather.

Food Pairing: It pairs beautifully with spicy chicken wings, a mild Thai red curry or spicy bean stew. Try a light summer salad with raspberry vinaigrette or honey glazed ham and traditional roast Turkey. For dessert we love it with berry pavlova or poured over vanilla ice cream. Also lovely with blue cheese.
