What is Mead?

By definition, mead is ‘an alcoholic drink of fermented honey and water’. This is at the heart of all of our meads and our business.

However, not all meads are created in the same manner. Known as the drink of the Gods and in modern memory, associated with the Vikings, mead is now also produced using base alcohol, white wine or sugar syrup, with honey added at a later stage.

We do have some that are not 100% honey.

We have 3 flavours which also use treacle or molasses – and it’s clear to see which they are! Even then, we only use up to a maximum of 25% in those recipes ONLY.

We do not add any sugars in any other recipes and ALL of our ingredients are listed in the description of each flavour.
