Kinsale Atlantic Dry Mead – Citrus & Crisp Traditional Mead
Kinsale Atlantic Dry Mead (12% ABV) is a delicious, off-dry traditional style mead, beautifully crisp with a lovely citrus honey flavour. Best enjoyed chilled or over ice as a pre-dinner drink.
It has lovely floral aromas and a long, lingering hint of honey with almost no sweetness; a perfect food pairing with salty appetisers such as olives, salted nuts or seafood. Or try pairing it with a lemon tart or buttermilk panna cotta.
Refreshingly different and definitely intriguing, it’s a great introduction to traditional style meads. Kinsale Atlantic Dry Mead has been re-invented and re-imagined from its ancient form and fermented at our meadery in Kinsale with carefully sourced pure orange blossom honey from the verdant orange groves of southern Spain. A popular choice for whiskey drinkers and honey lovers.
It certainly has the judges jumping off their chairs with numerous awards to date including the UK Great Taste Award 2 Star (outstanding), Silver Blas na hEireann (Irish Food Awards), Gold medal at International Mazer Cup and Gold at the Free From Food Awards.
And of course, since it’s made with pure honey, it’s Naturally Gluten Free.
Low in sulfites. 70cl bottle.
First class product. Atlantic Dry Mead is my particular favourite, aroma of blossom and taste of the flower through the honey (Mark E.)
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)
I can smell some fresh green olives and white flowers, in Italy we would call it “glicine.” There’s a underlying saltiness to the taste that’s very pleasant (Giovanni, Italy)

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.
