Atlantic Dry Mead – White Port Barrel Aged Limited Edition
Atlantic Dry Mead – White Port Barrel Aged (12% ABV) is an alluring 3-year-old traditional mead fermented from orange blossom honey, finished off dry, crisp and honeyed, matured for the last 12 months in an oak port barrel to add spicy oak depth. As seen on celebrity chef, John Torode’s Ireland on the Food Network.
A rich and peppery, well balanced mead with a mellow apricot character, rounded with honey and citrus aromatics on the finish. Subtle with delicate citrus on the nose, spicy on the palate, lots of honey and amaretto with oak, smooth, stone fruit character and nuttiness resonating on the palate. A lovely balance of sweetness and zesty acidity. Enjoy this delectable, dry mead lightly chilled.
Note: We can’t ship our limited edition, barrel aged meads to the UK except for Northern Ireland at the moment.
Our beautiful label was inspired by the story of the “Wild Geese” Irish who emigrated or were exiled in waves from Ireland to the continent at the end of the Jacobite wars. Some settled in France and started trading and making wine. Today, in Bordeaux, you can find the names of those resilient Irish emigrants on the streets and vineyards of the region – Lynch, Barton, Boyd, Phelan – alongside other trading connections to the wine ports of Ireland.
Kinsale in 18th century was a thriving port, one of several in Ireland licensed to import wines from the France, Spain, Portugal. The harbour and warehouses were full of barrels of the finest wines, ports and sherries. In a sense, we are completing the circle, bringing those precious barrels back to Ireland.

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 a 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 Barrel Aged Meads are fine for 2 weeks.
