Spruce Mead - The Rookery Craft Mead


We accept :- Payment buttons

Hand-picked spruce tips from around The Rookery are harvested seasonally,  the harvest is only available for a short window of a couple of weeks in May. Inspired by the Sami of northern Scandinavia, spruce is excellent wild food and it has been used as a food and in shamanic rites back into pre-history.

Flavour notes:
this mead is light and delicate with citrus notes and a strong sense of honey-dew melon.  The ending is gently peaty, evocative of a whisky, but much smoother. 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.  Sloe gin and Spruce Mead is an especially good cocktail to try.

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.
