Kinsale Atlantic Dry Mead


Atlantic Dry Mead is a delicious traditional style mead made from raw orange blossom honey carefully sourced from Southern Spain. The honey is mixed with our local water and yeast and fermented off dry.

Tasting Notes: A lovely citrus, floral aroma and long lingering hints of honey with almost no sweetness. An attractive, soft, honeyed taste which is very enjoyable and certainly different and definitely intriguing. 12% ABV.

Serve: Enjoy chilled, over ice or serve half and half with a lightly flavoured tonic and an orange garnish.

Food Pairing: Lovely with almonds, seafoodand oysters or try it with a lemon tart or buttermilk pannacotta.

1 measure of Irish Gin

2 measures of Atlantic Dry Mead

½ measure of honey syrup

½ measure of fresh lemon juice

Shaken and poured in a saucer cocktail glass with a lemon twist garnish.

This is a mead take on the classic 1920’s prohibition cocktail. Back then the addition of honey and lemon was used to mask the taste and smell of bathtub gin.

Honey syrup is half honey, half warm water.

It was created for us by Thomas Kay & Miroslav Adamcik @ The Supper Club, Kinsale.
