‘Pale gold in colour with wildflowers and cooked honey aromas mixed with a touch of vanilla and spice. Fruity and lush on first taste but with acidity and tangy freshness kicking in and some lingering pot-still notes on the finish. Treat yourself.’
Leslie Williams, Irish Examiner, March 2024

Wild Forest Honey Mead is a traditional mead fermented from dark, rich forest honey from Galicia and aged in Irish oak whiskey casks from one of the country's leading distilleries. The casks, seasoned with single pot still Irish whiskey impart lush, layered flavours to this limited edition release, which has the distinction of being the first mead to be aged in Irish whiskey casks.

The honey softness of the style, finished semi-sweet, is in perfect balance with the hints of whiskey, and the association brings out floral and toffee notes along with subtle spice and persistent orchard fruit flavours.

This is one to enjoy on its own, slightly chilled perhaps. A very special treat from Cork's own purpose-built meadery.

We cannot guarantee delivery on a given day. If the delivery date is important, please let us know, and we'll put one of our 'Not to Be Opened Before' stickers on the box and aim for delivery a day or two early.

Your orders are delivered by courier to ensure fast and reliable delivery of each carefully packaged consignment. Because nobody likes breakages, we use very strong and secure packaging specially designed to protect wine bottles.

Personalised champagne orders are dispatched to anticipate your requested deadline (see above), or otherwise as soon as possible. Please allow at least one extra working day for these orders to be prepared.

Eircodes please

The ideal delivery address has someone available to sign for parcels during office hours, so a work address may be a better choice than a home address. An Eircode eliminates any doubt about the delivery location, and you can find or check Eircodes here.

Phone numbers please

Our couriers do their best to deliver and often have amazing local knowledge, but in the event of difficulties a reliable telephone number for the recipient makes all the difference and is a required piece of information. A mobile number is usually best.

Track your order

When we dispatch your order, we send on a tracking code so that you can follow your order in transit on the courier's website.

Delivery outside Ireland

If you need delivery to Northern Ireland, our €15 standard rate applies, with orders of €150 and more travelling free—for the time being.

We do not generally send wine overseas because of the complicated bureaucratic requirements and very high cost. If you would nonetheless like more information about deliveries outside the island of Ireland, please ask.


Faulty bottles

Wine is a natural product: its variety is what makes it so interesting!

Sometimes, though, a faulty bottle turns up. It's rare, but it does happen.

We want you to enjoy the wines you buy from us, and we'd like you to enjoy doing business with us too.

If you are unlucky enough to receive a bad bottle, please let us know immediately by calling the office on 021 431 6000 and we'll arrange a replacement or issue a credit in compensation.

Broken or Damaged Deliveries

Despite our best efforts to wrap and pack securely, damage in transit occurs from time to time.

If there's a breakage, our couriers will normally return the whole fragrant mess to us straight away.

If, however, the damage isn't apparent until you open the box, we'd still prefer to have the whole parcel collected. We'll send you a replacement as soon as possible.
