Midwinter Mead 700ml

At the closing of the C11th, and into the C12th, the Crusades by European Nations into the lands of the Bible brought a whole new panoply of flavours to those who took part.  This explosion of flavours is reflected in primary sources and in trade information from the period.  The Midwinter Mead reflects the mediaeval passion for these new flavours, combining whole, bitter oranges, fresh ginger and frankincense.

The mead is dark and rich, with a marmalade lead, followed by the warmth of the fresh ginger root.  The ending is an elusive woody aroma, from the Frankincense [Boswellia Frereana – the king of frankincense], a sweet and gentle frankincense from the highland regions of Northern Somalia.

This mead is perfect as an after-dinner drink or as a night-cap on those cold, winter nights.  This will only be available in the dark months of the year.
