Our 'purest' mead. SImply fermented honey with a dash of lemon - the yeast loves a little acidity. Drier than many meads you may try, and best enjoyed at room temperature.
Almost as uncomplicated as the Classic. Simply sweetened with a little honey, the same as we use in the initial fermentation. This one is delicious warmed or served as a long drink with ginger beer or lemonade.
Our most popular 'special' so now it's a regular. Made with real lemons and real ginger and sweet enough to bring out all the depth of flavour without being too sticky-sweet. Fantastic as a hot toddy in its own right, or chilled with an ice-cube on a lazy summer afternoon.
Ready soon - mid-November.
This one is different. Brewed more like a light ale, this comes in at 4% (all the rest are 12% and still). It's made from equal parts honey and malt and is bottle-conditioned. A delicious refreshment at any time.
Available soon- when the trees are in flower.
A true 'botanical' flavour. Fresh elderflowers from the garden of one of the Sandys, producing a fragrant and refreshing mead. Perfect for the early summer.
Available soon- ready for Christmas.
This brings the true fruit flavour to your palate, not a cherry sweety or a cough-drop flavour. Fresh, juicy cherries were steamed to extract their juice for this fruity treat.
Ready (almost) when you are.
An unusual mead. Our Classic Sweet with home grown dried chillies added (briefly) to create a distinctly warming effect without the expected explosion of heat. Always available with 48 hours notice as it is made by flavouring the finished mead.
Our Meads taste delicious out of a glass or tumber, but what more traditional vessel than a horn?
All our horns are ready to use, sealed inside and easy to clean. Just no hot water, dishwasher or metal scrubbing.
With a frog (leather holder for your belt) or a wrought metal stand, they are a very practical ornament.
Horns can come plain or engraved. We buy the horns in and Sandy M does the engraving by hand. He uses Runes, Ogham or even Elvish to add messages to the horn.
