Description

The meads from the Lancashire Mead Company are probably best described as classic meads, with sweet, smooth flavour profiles. While usually not strongly aromatic, the Lancashire meads sit very pleasantly on the tongue and have both a mellowness and depth that make them extremely moreish. As such they are best enjoyed alongside cheeses or desserts that can serve as a contrast or a compliment to the sweetness of the mead, while also helping to prevent an entire bottle from “accidentally” vanishing.

The Rhubarb mead has a lively “twang” to it while still remaining quite smooth overall. This makes it a slightly more refreshing alternative to richer fruit meads, and might even benefit from being served cool or lightly chilled to further cut the sweetness of the honey. Because the rhubarb concentrate is added post-fermentation, this isn’t a “true” melomel/fruit mead*, but this helps keep the sharpness from mellowing out.
Best served with strong cheeses or complimented by vanilla ice cream.
