Bunratty Meade

Size: 750ml

"For authentic Irish drinks, one need look no farther than Bunratty Meade Honey Wine, made from white wine with honey and herbs. The drink of ancient Gauls and Anglo Saxons, Mead was originally made by monks centuries ago from fermented honey and water. Mead soon made its way into the courts of the Four Kings of Ireland and no banquet was complete without it.

"This honey-based drink was said to possess powers of virility and fertility, and it became custom for a bride and groom to drink mead for one full moon after their wedding, giving birth to the word 'honeymoon.' In Ireland today, it is still tradition to toast the bride and groom with a glass of Meade when they depart on their honeymoon from the wedding feast.

"Bunratty Meade Honey Wine is superb when chilled and served over ice. A mixture of wine, honey, and herbs, Meade is a completely authentic Irish drink." —winemaker

This has become my favorite mead so far. It helps that I can get it locally at 19.99 a bottle its very good. I suggest it to anyone who is interested in trying mead. It has sort of an oak barrel, whisky smell but none of the burn one would associate with the smell.
Try it, you will like it.

"This artisan metheglin-style Danish mead has hibiscus and hops, which give it a soft, citrus-like flavor and very floral aroma. Its finish is hoppy-dry, spicy, and very warming." —importer

"The world's oldest fermented beverage made from honey has been a popular drink from Europe to Australia dating back to long before Viking times. One of the earliest references to fermented honey can be found in the Hindus of India's holy books, the Vedas, which date back 4000 years and possibly even earlier than that.

"The oldest known recipe for mead to be written down in the Nordic countries was in 1520 by the Archbishop Olaus Magnus. The recipe comprised of water, honey, hops and brewers yeast, and concludes, that 'on the eight day it may be drunk, but the longer it is left, the purer and better it will be.'

"Our products are brewed based on a recipe from about 1700, and the ingredients are pure and 100-percent natural — guaranteed free from additives of any kind. Honey is the major and most important item in the recipe." —brewer

"Nordic honey wine with hops added. Serve slightly chilled in a wine glass as an aperitif, or over ice with fruits. At room temperature in a port wine glass, it is excellent as dessert wine; for a winter warmer, heat the liquid without boiling and serve in a mug." —importer

"A metheglin-style mead with ginger and hops. Big notes of ginger on the nose. On the palate, ginger meets honey with a dryish-hoppy finish. Very warming." —importer

"Ribe Mjod is brewed in celebration of Scandinavia's oldest town – Ribe, 1,300 years! The recipe is prepared in cooperation with Ribe Viking Centre. Ribe Mjod is a dessert honey wine that can be enjoyed cooled or at room temperature. Ribe Mjod ages well. There may be some natural yeast sediments on the bottom. Same honey base as Viking Blod/Klapojster Mjod/GI Dansk/Vikingernes with the addition of fresh, unfiltered and unpasteurized apple juice (local apples) added to the mix of honey and water. After that it is then transferred to the fermentation tank and fermented around 6 weeks. Then transferred to maturation tank to which hops (as bitter = balancing agent) are added (same process as with Viking Blod/Klapojster Mjod/GI Dansk Mjod/Vikingernes Mjod). It is then racked for a second time for about 10 days." —winemaker
