Kinsale Mead Co. Atlantic Dry Mead
This product is currently sold out.
This lovely Irish mead is handcrafted in West Cork. Each batch is carefully mixed, fermented and matured with care and passion and attention to quality.
Kinsale and Spain have close maritime links dating back several centuries and the honey used comes from Spain along those same trade routes to Kinsale. Spanish orange blossom honey is their single source floral honey for the traditional style Atlantic Dry Mead.
The water used comes from Innishannon (Inis Eonáin) upriver from Kinsale along the beautiful meandering river Bandon which rises in the Shehy Mountains. They like to think that the water gets infused with the salty air of the Wild Atlantic, especially after a winter storm has blown over.
Kinsale Atlantic Dry Mead is dry with lovely floral, citrus aroma, a long lingering hint of honey and almost no sweetness. Serve chilled or over ice. Lovely with almonds, fish and oysters or try pairing it with a lemon tart or buttermilk panna cotta.
