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 Pear Mead, made with hand-picked pears, delivers exactly what it says on the label, a light and clear pear aroma and fruitiness backed up by a gentle honey sweetness. The clarity of the flavour makes it a nice cool standalone drink for a warm summer’s evening, or as an accompaniment to lighter foods. Heathens have been known to serve it mixed with ginger ale.
