Crab apples have been a European food staple for over 10,000 years. This mead is a cyser - a melomel made from crab apples collected from the hills around Perthshire. The sourness of the crab apple complements the sweetness of the honey, giving it a delectably sweet-tangy finish.
Crab apple mead is a sweet, but tangy mead that has been seasoned by oak. The oak cuts into the light sweetness with a tannin bite.
About the Meadery:
Rookery Craft Mead is an independent meadery in Perthshire. A huge amount of research goes 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 ever used by the Rookery.
