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.

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)
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.
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.
