Midsummer Mead - The Rookery Craft Mead


This product is sold out

Inspired by three archæological finds in Scotland (North Mains, Ashgrove and Machrie Mains) ranging from 1,700BC to 2,500BC, this mead has drawn from each of these to represent a 4,000 year old Scottish mead.  Lime honey, meadowsweet, and heather combine to create a full-bodied and heady mead.

Lots of meadowsweet flower on the nose with a rich maltiness from the heather in the mouth.  Toffee notes linger without too much sweetness – medium to medium-dry.

Serve chilled. Try with ginger ale or tonic water for a long drink and it goes well with a measure of either whisky or gin added.

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.
