Kinsale Wild Red Mead (12% ABV) is a gorgeous melomel mead fermented off-dry with Irish blackcurrants, dark cherries and raw honey. The result is an amazingly enticing drink with a beautiful, rich colour. It is delicious served at room temperature on its own or with food. For cooler evenings, try our seasonal mulled mead recipe with honey and gentle spices.
The Wexford blackcurrants are beautifully balanced with the dark cherries, tempered over the hint of honey and matured to a very smooth finish. Serve with roast duck, barbecue dishes and rich, tomato-y Italian dishes. Lovely with cheeseboards or good quality chocolate. A popular choice with wine drinkers who prefer a smoother style.
Melomel Fruit Meads were Ireland’s medieval red wines made from native wild berries and raw honey and now created anew at Kinsale Mead Co’s meadery in West Cork.
The judges really like the Wild Red Mead and it has been awarded Gold at the Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards, Gold at the Free From Food Awards.
