This mead will be different every time it is made. Berries are gathered through the autumn from across the Strathardle Glen, and may include such things as rowanberry, hawthorn, rosehips, elderberries, plums, crab apples, sloes, wild cherries, and anything else I can find.
Complex and fruity, this is usually brewed to be a medium-dry mead, used like a very light red wine, it goes well with roasted vegetables, red meat and tomato sauces.
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!
Store in a cool dark place. Shelf-life is in excess of 1 year.
