Traditional Mead 14% is a deliciously smooth, sweet handmade wine made from fermented honey. We have bottled our Traditional Mead in our handsome cube shaped Mystic 500ml bottle, which can be combined with other similar bottles to create an attractive stacking gift set.

How is this best drunk?

We believe that you can enjoy Traditional Mead on all occasions as an aperitif. In summer it is delicious chilled and can be served in the place of a pudding wine with cheese. In winter it makes a wonderfully warming mulled drink. Many cocktail and dessert recipes are possible using this deliciously smooth honey wine.

How is this made?

Mead is perhaps the oldest alcoholic drink in the world and was traditionally consumed at weddings, hence a possible source of the name, honeymoon. Our Traditional Mead, or Honey Wine is made from a simple blend of British honey, water and yeast by a small team of passionate individuals at Nigel Howard's West Country Winery in Devon. We should know as Frances and I went to visit them to see how it was done. Nigel, a retired banker who escaped the City in 1994 to make wine, uses both traditional and modern production methods to create some really unique drinks. Although Nigel has now retired from his Winery also, his artisan winery lives on.

Anything else I should know?

We have some fabulous cocktail and dessert recipes that use Traditional Mead in them. Here are some of our recipe ideas:

Meady Mouthfulls - Honey Mead Cookies

Rhubarb and Mead Pavlova

Mead and Lemon Syllabub
