Atlantic Dry Mead: Very seductive, subtle flavours of honey and citrus with a lovely clean finish, very enjoyable with firm cheeses – Comte, Cais na Tire (John Wilson – Irish Times)
Wild Red Mead: Nice acidity on this one, cleans the palate and wants you to drink more (Giovanni, Italy)
Hazy Summer Mead: Generous fruit character and a zingy off-dry finish, enjoy like a light wine with charcuterie or salted cheese (Aoife Carrigy – Irish Independent)

Prices and Gifting
Note we do not include and prices on the delivery docket included with the shipment so great for gifts.
Store the bottles similar to wine, upright in a cool place away from direct sunlight and they should keep for at least two years.
Once opened, store the bottles upright in the fridge. If you have one of those vacuum pump wine bottle closures that pump out the oxygen, all the better. After that the flavour starts to change a little as the air gets to it. Good to drink still or use in cocktails or cooking.
The Atlantic Dry Mead starts to change in flavour after 7 days. The Wild Red Mead and the Hazy Summer Mead are fine for 2 weeks as there are more natural preservatives from the skins. Then they become more port-like.
Atlantic Dry Mead is lovely with salty snacks such as olives, roasted nuts, seafood or artisan crisps. Try poaching scallops with a creamy mead sauce or try it with chicken in black bean sauce. For desserts, it’s lovely raspberry and white chocolate sponge, poached fruit such as plums or nectarines or goats cheese.
Wild Red Mead: Great with Italian dishes with a rich tomato sauce or with medieval feast dishes such as roast duck or venison as well as sticky barbecue ribs, sausages and black pudding. Lovely with strong cheeses or good quality chocolate. We love it with Chocolate brownies too and Christmas goodies like mince pies, Christmas cake and pudding.
Hazy Summer Mead 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 your Christmas Turkey. For dessert we love it with berry pavlova or poured over vanilla ice cream.
Wild Red Mead – Merlot Barrel Aged shines with food such as roast rack of lamb and rosemary, a rich nut roast or pâté on thin cut toast, Prosciutto or Palma ham or artisan mini sausages or chipolatas.
