Kinsale Mead Co., Hazy Summer MeadRegular price €24.00
Great Taste ★ 2021 ‘rich ripe strawberries and honey…extremely enticing.’
Joining the Atlantic Dry and Wild Red meads in the range from Denis and Kate Dempsey's Kinsale Mead Company is the berrylicious Hazy Summer mead, which combines a Spanish honey mead base with ‘a tumble’ of strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, blackberries, blueberries and cherries.
Like the company's Wild Red Mead, this is a melomel or fruit mead type where the berries lend acidity, colour and tannins to the finished drink. Though this is delicious by itself, with ripe strawberry and raspberry character to the fore, it makes a very attractive long drink over ice or mixed with a sparkling wine.
