Mead is the oldest alcoholic drink in the world, unique in that its primary ingredient is honey but also incredibly diverse – it can range from dry to very sweet, which may come as a surprise when you think of honey as its primary ingredient.
Traditional meads are usually made with honey from a single floral source. The Atlantic Dry Mead is a ‘traditional mead’ with a refreshing citrus orange honey flavour. Its primary ingredient is raw Spanish orange blossom honey from southern Spain. Kinsale’s history is of course uniquely linked to Spain and the battle of Kinsale in 1601.
This mead is best served chilled, or over ice or with tonic water and a thin slice of orange. Atlantic Dry is lovely with olives, herby pasta dishes or with a dessert like raspberry and white chocolate tart.
