Kinsale Wild Red Mead


This is a gorgeous melomel style mead made from Spanish honey, zesty Wexford blackcurrants balanced with dark, sweet cherries and tempered over the hint of honey to create an amazingly enticing drink with a beautiful, rich colour.

Tasting Notes: A very clear, clean red fruit aroma with a blackcurrant and cherry tones and a very smooth long finish.

Serve: Delicious at room temperature or poured over ice with a thin slice of orange.

Food Pairing: Great paired with roast duck and Cumberland sauce and sticky barbecue ribs. Also with strong cheeses such as cheddar and dark chocolate.
