Description

The Afon Mêl (lit. “river of honey”) range of meads from the Afon Mêl bee farm and meadery are sweet, complex meads with flavour profiles comparable to sherry or port. Brewed up to 13% using honey from the meadery’s own Welsh hives, the meads are matured for 18 months in old whisky barrels. This not only gives the flavours and aromas plenty of time to blend and develop, but also adds sherry-like notes to the aftertaste, which can linger for a while afterwards.
Best enjoyed in small sherry glasses or snifters.

The Blackberry mead is one of the most intensely fruity of the Afon Mel melomels. Sweet and slightly tart to begin with, its main feature is its rich and long-lasting aftertaste, with the honey and cask notes creeping around the edges. This is a mead that you’ll want to set aside time to appreciate, as each sip can last for minutes.

    Absolutely wonderful to drink, very sweet and rich. Tasted like autumn, and the blackberry shone through very clearly. Looking forward to trying more of these.
