Another metheglin (or spiced mead) from Friary Liqueurs with a Christmas theme. This one is not listed on Friary’s own website, so either I’m getting hold of rare stock or this one is no longer produced.
Friary Liqueurs make an interesting mead liqueur in their “classic collection”. It is blended with a 3 year old blended Scottish whisky and weighs in at 18% ABV.
Another from the famous Lindisfarne range and this this it’s their “dark” offering. Again, as with all their offerings, this is technical a pyment due to grapes being the original fermentable in the production.
Lindisfarne mead is perhaps one of the most well-known in the UK with their own website claiming they have sold over 2,000,000 bottles! It is made by St Aiden’s Winery on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Northumberland.
The London Honey Co. claims to be the first mead producer in London. This mead is perhaps more a cyser with the Kentish apples added to the Shropshire heather honey. The drink is finished with calvados and grape juice making this an interesting drink with aspects of mead, cider and wine.
