Kinsale Irish Wildflower Mead
Out of stock
This is a very special, limited edition mead made from 100% Irish summer wildflower honey from The Chanting Bee Apiary in West Cork. 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 and blossoms, pollinating and collecting the nectar from hawthorn, wild clover and white blackberry blossom.
We sourced beautiful Wildflower Honey from our beekeeper, Paul Kelly at the end of August 2020 and it was ready to bottle and release in April 2021.
Tasting Notes: This elegant mead is a true expression of a traditional Irish, handcrafted, semi-sweet mead, finished 11% ABV.
Serve: Pale gold in colour, delicate in its finish, it is best served on its own lightly chilled allowing the soft honeyed notes to linger.
Food Pairing: Try with Goat’s cheese or crème brulée or baked New York cheesecake or just as an after dinner sipping delight.
Awards: Silver medal at Blas na hEireann 2020

This Irish Wildflower is something else. I find the taste to be lovely and very much honey. I feel as though I could drink the Irish Wildflower like water. That’s why I’m buying more bottles and I wrote this to ask you to please make more like this one. Here’s hoping you expand and strengthen the Irish Honey industry and all that comes with it. Support Irish Business and Support Irish Bees. Can’t get much better. (John B)

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 Wildflower Mead keeps for at least a month if there’s any left by then, as it is semi-sweet.
Mead Food Pairing
This semi-sweet mead shines with food such as Feta-style goat’s cheese, honeyed baklava almond or a creamy creme brulee. A fantastic after dinner drink.
