Kinsale Wildflower Irish Mead (11% ABV) is a very special, limited edition mead made from 100% Irish summer wildflower honey This honey is a lovely expression of the aromas and flavours of West Cork. It will transport you to our local countryside with one sip. Our honeybees roam and forage the hedgerows, pollinating and collecting the nectar from hawthorn, wild clover and white blackberry blossom. We sourced beautiful Wildflower Honey from our beekeeper, Paul Kelly. Finished semi-sweet.
Kinsale Atlantic Dry Mead (12% ABV) is a delicious, off-dry traditional style mead, beautifully crisp with a lovely citrus honey flavour. Best enjoyed lightly chilled or over ice. Popular with whiskey lovers. It has lovely citrus floral aromas and longer lingering hints of honey with almost no sweetness. Refreshingly different and definitely intriguing, it’s a great introduction to traditional style meads. This is the favourite choice for whiskey lovers.
Kinsale Wild Red Mead (12% ABV) is a gorgeous melomel mead fermented off-dry with Wexford blackcurrants, dark cherries and raw honey; an amazingly enticing drink with a beautiful, rich colour. The Irish blackcurrants are beautifully balanced with the dark cherries, tempered over the hint of honey and matured to a very smooth finish. Deliciously smooth at room temperature. Low in tannins, this is popular with wine drinkers.
Kinsale Hazy Summer Mead (11% ABV) is a fabulous, fruity, off-dry berry mead with generous strawberry and raspberry aromas, a lovely burst of summer berries and a smooth, subtle honey finish. Perfect served lightly chilled or over ice or in a sharing jug with frozen berries. It is fermented from raw honey muddled with a tumble of ripe summer berries. Best choice for craft drinkers especially gin or craft beer lovers.

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.
The Wildflower Mead keeps longer than the others as it’s semi-sweet. Up to 4 weeks if there’s any left by then.
