Description

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 Rookery’s Wildflower mead is fermented with a range of flowers that have been foraged from the Perthshire hills surrounding the meadery. The flavour is unsurprisingly floral, but also has a very “green” botanical note that gives it a pleasant dryness to counter the slight sweetness. This is an excellent lighter alternative to a botanical spirit, and serves well chilled in a glass that gives the aromas a wide surface area to evaporate from.
