Crab apples have been a European food staple for over 10,000 years. The Rookery crab apples come from the hills around Perthshire, bulked out by apples from a tree Chris planted in my parents’ garden when he was 8. Always a fore-sighted child!
Crab apple mead is a sweet, but tangy mead which has been seasoned by oak. The oak cuts into the light sweetness with a tannin bite.
Rookery Craft Mead is an independent meadery in Perthshire. A huge amount of research go into their meads, looking to evidence in the historical and archæological record for source material, then back-engineering these ancient drinks to create modern and exciting products. Almost all the ingredients, down to the wax seal, are foraged and sourced from the local area; if there was ever an authentic mead, this is it.
No sulphites, sugars or syrups are used…ever!
