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 Honey mead, in spite of being the most straightforward of the Afon Mel meads, is actually one of the more complex ones. The flavours and aroma from the wildflower honey are wonderfully clear, but they are also mild enough to allow the cask notes to feature more, making the mead quite sherry-like with a light acidity. One for the purists to savour.
