(1 customer review)


A sweet mead with an intense honey aroma from the New Quay Honey Farm (37.5 cl, 13%).

Out of stock


The Afon Mel (lit. “river of honey”) range of meads from the New Quay Honey Farm 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 Heather mead has one of the most intense honey aromas of all the Afon Mel meads. Back-sweetened with heather honey, which has an intense flavour and aroma, this mead somehow manages to be “more honeyish than honey”. This is a mead to sit with and savour the smell of. It also goes well alongside sweet and creamy desserts.

    Lovely rich honey smell that wafts off the glass.
