The perfect wedding drink

Mead has been shared at weddings for many centuries. The precious allocation of honey was used to make this beautiful drink to honour the guests and wedding feasts that could last for days. Update the tradition from pre-Celtic times to the 21st century.

Something Old

Mead is the world’s oldest alcoholic drink and is known as the honeymoon drink. Fermented from honey, it was traditionally drunk at weddings to toast the happy couple. They were gifted a month’s supply or a moon-cycle of mead, following the wedding to drink together, celebrate the marriage and bring good luck and happiness – hence the name ‘Honeymoon.’

So that’s 28 bottles?!

Something New

From bee to bottle, in 2017, Kinsale Mead Co opened Ireland’s first new Meadery in 200 years. They handcraft their delicious, light and refreshing mead in small batches from carefully sourced natural ingredients. Something unique and Irish for your wedding would be mead for a welcome drink, for the wedding toast, a beautiful cocktail or miniatures for wedding favours.

Something Borrowed

Mead has been made and shared in Ireland at celebrations for centuries. You can borrow this ancient tradition to serve Kinsale Mead for your family and friends for your welcome drink, at your cocktail bar, for gifts or for the wedding toast.
