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 Raspberry mead is upfront and quite intense. Sweet and slightly tart, it delivers a lot of taste right away, and is absolutely one to sip and savour. As the fruit flavour fades out along with hints of honey and cask, the acidity from the raspberries lingers on, giving a surprisingly strong “buzz” in the cheeks.

    A truly excellent mead, amazingly smooth and the berry flavours show through strongly. A great after dinner drink. I haven’t tried but I suspect it will pair well with a cheese platter.
