If you’ve heard of mead, you’ll want to know how to drink it!

We are often asked what is the best way to drink mead?

The answer to this question is very much down to the type of mead drink you have in front of you.

With our Sparkling Mead at 12% ABV, we recommend serving chilled, like a Champagne or sparkling wine, ideally around 6-8ºC

Other mead types which are stronger in alcohol over 14%, may be taken warmed up or at room temperature, or with spices. Hower these are very different offerings to what we produce, and find ours benefits hugely from being chilled.

With a perfect balance of acidity in the sparkling meads they are really a taste sensation when served chilled. The temperature change on the palate from chilled to warm allows the broadest experience of the flavour profile of the sparkling meads.

We suggest for our Sparkling Meads either half an hour in the freezer if you’re in a rush! Or keep them in the fridge so they are perfectly chilled and ready for you when you are.

The temperature change in the mouth from cold to warm, really helps to explore the full profile of the sparkling meads, as the chilled mead warms on the tongue the bubbles explode and unlock the full depth of honey following a dry crisp start, ending in a smooth honey finish.
