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 Viking’s Blood Mead is a dark berry mead, consisting of a mix of blackberry, blueberry and blackcurrant concentrates that are added during the fermentation, making it an excellent melomel/fruit mead. With both the fruit and honey lending their sweet flavours, this mead goes well with cheeses and rich desserts, where it stands in well for a port. Lighter desserts like vanilla ice cream can help highlight subtler flavour notes from the fruit.

This product contains: Water, Blossom honey, Yeast, Yeast Nutrient, Blackberry concentrate, Blackcurrant concentrate, Blueberry concentrate.
This product does NOT contain: Gluten, Wheat, Fish, Dairy, Sulphites, Eggs, Gelatin.

To the best of our knowledge, no Vikings were harmed in the making of this mead.

  1. John

    A ver pleasant mead. The berry flavour is not over powering and it is exceptionally smooth to drink. An afternoon mead, if that is a thing.

  2. Elizabeth

    Pleasant and worryingly drinkable, with a hint of sourness from the berries giving it an afterbite. Bottle makes a good murder weapon.
