Mead is an incredibly old traditional alcoholic drink. It can have an ABV varying in strength between 8 to 20%. There are many sorts of mead ranging from those that are from fermented honey to the roman style of mixing blends of honey with wine (muslin mead). The basic or traditional mead derives its taste from the blends of honey used to produce it. This original mead is often given different flavours by infusion of various fruits, spices, grains or occasionally hops. Mead is known from many sources of ancient history throughout Europe, Africa and Asia. “It can be regarded as the ancestor of all fermented drinks.” We are proud to have sold over 2,000,000 bottles of our own original Lindisfarne Mead.
