Something Old; Mead is the world’s oldest alcoholic drink, referred to as nectar of the gods, ambrosia, honey wine or honeymoon wine. It is made from fermented honey and water and dates back as far as 6,000 BC. It has been made and drunk in Ireland at celebrations for centuries.
Something New; From bee to bottle, in 2017, Kinsale Mead Co opened Ireland’s ﬁrst new Meadery in many years. They handcraft their delicious, light and refreshing mead in small batches from natural ingredients.
Something Borrowed; Mead is known as the honeymoon drink, fermented from honey, it was traditionally drunk at weddings to toast the happy couple. Part of the dowry gifts was enough mead to drink together for the month, or moon-cycle, following the wedding to celebrate the marriage and bring good luck and happiness.
Something Deliciously Different; Atlantic Dry Mead is a traditional style mead made from raw Spanish orange blossom honey and fermented off dry to 12% ABV. Serve chilled or over ice with tonic.
Wild Red Mead is a melomel style mead made from cherries, Wexford blackcurrants and Spanish honey and fermented off dry to 12% ABV. Lovely at room temperature or try adding to prosecco or sparkling wine.
