Description

The Rookery meadery is as of writing Scotland’s only operational meadery. Focusing on purity as well as historical accuracy, their meads are made using ingredients that would have been available to people in medieval times, where possible using locally sourced and foraged ingredients.
The fermentation of strong Scottish heather honey tempered by a milder polyfloral honey up to 17% yields a warming mead with only a mild sweetness. This serves as a backdrop to the clear flavours and aromatics that make these meads quite popular among whisky-drinkers and as a lighter alternative for a post-meal tipple.

The Midsummer Mead is a light and floral mead, fermented using lime honey, meadowsweet (also known as “mead wort”) and heather. While the lime honey and meadwort give it a fresh flavour with a hint of grass, the heather adds distinct floral notes. Medium-dry, it is very pleasant served cool on a summers day. Heathens have even been known to lighten it with ginger ale or tonic water.
