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 Traditional Mead manages to be both simple and complex. Consisting of only honey, water and yeast, the fermentation allows the aromatics of the honey to stand out, with caramel and whisky-like notes, and even a hint of walnut according to some*! Easy to savour, but easy to vanish too, this mead is best served as an evening drink in either a small wine glass or, even better, a whisky tumbler.
