Atlantic Dry Mead: First class product. Atlantic Dry Mead is my particular favourite, aroma of blossom and taste of the flower through the honey. (Mark E.)
Wild Red Mead: Not only a beautiful beverage but also top notch customer service. Big thanks to Kinsale Mead Co for providing me with this little bottle of joy! (Malwina T.)
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)
Kinsale Mead Co has upped its impressive game another notch with its latest limited-edition release. Based on forest honey fermented with blackcurrants and black cherries, Wild Red Mead – Merlot Barrel Aged is aged for two years, plus one in ex-Merlot barrels. At 12% with generous fruit character and a zingy, off dry finish, it can be enjoyed like a light red wine with charcuterie or salty cheese. (Aoife Carrigy – Irish Independent)
Their Atlantic Dry Mead – White Port Barrel Aged was absolutely stunning (Niall T.)
Atlantic Dry Mead – Sauternes Barrel Aged: Floral and scented with layers of honey, toasted nuts and citrus peel. Intriguing and delicious. Try with strong cheeses – it would be great with blue cheese (John Wilson – Irish Times)
Wildflower Mead is just like you are drinking flowers dipped in honey. Magnificent endeavour. I must confess I’m in love with these meads of yours. I will highly recommend it to all my friends as a mild refreshing drink. (Lina M)
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 and Barrel Aged Meads all keep for at least a month if there’s any left by then.
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.
Atlantic Dry Mead – White Port Barrel Aged shines with food such as smoked salmon crostini, or sushi and sashimi. Great with mackerel or mushroom pate especially if you add a slug into the mix! For a sweet finish try with vanilla fairy cakes or baked cheesecake.
Atlantic Dry Mead – Sauternes Barrel Aged shines with food such as smoked salmon crostini, or sushi or sashimi. Great with mushroom pate especially if you add a slug into the mix! For a sweet finish try with vanilla fairy cakes.
Wildflower Mead mead shines with food such as Feta-style goat’s cheese, honeyed baklava, a creamy crème brulée or baked New York cheesecake or just as an after dinner sipping.
