Light, crisp and refreshing. This is a medium-dry, fruity mead that presents like a rosé wine. Tart and full-flavoured, the raspberry grows on the palate. Made with a combination of hand-picked wild raspberries and locally cultivated raspberries from Charlie Bell, a gentleman who has been growing fruit since 1948!
Serve chilled. Use this mead as if it were a wine – great with seafood, chicken and dishes with cream. Also, try it with a gin or vodka and a mixer and garnish for a long drink.
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.
