The Rookery meadery is as of writing Scotland’s only operational meadery. Focusing on purity as well as historical accuracy, their meads are made using ingredients that would have been available to people in medieval times, where possible using locally sourced and foraged ingredients.
The fermentation of strong Scottish heather honey tempered by a milder polyfloral honey up to 17% yields a warming mead with only a mild sweetness. This serves as a backdrop to the clear flavours and aromatics that make these meads quite popular among whisky-drinkers and as a lighter alternative for a post-meal tipple.

The Crab Apple Cyser is a fruity and tangy mead, with less sharpness than one might expect from a mead made with bitter crab apples. Made by fermenting honey with the juice of apples from the hills of Perthshire – and some from the producer’s parents’ back garden – the mead is subsequently seasoned with oak to a give a full-bodied and tangy mead with a pleasant mouth-feel. Serve at room temperature in small glasses. Cheese is always an option.
