Another offering from Lyme Bay Winery, this mead is another of the darker styles spiced with ginger. This leads to a warming, comforting mead drink for the colder months of the year. The ginger spices means this is a metheglin rather than a “normal” mead.
The colour is a reddish-brown reminiscent of autumn.
The aroma is overwhelmed with ginger. There are hints of honey at the start just before the ginger kicks in.
The taste is not far off the traditional mead in terms of body and sweetness, but the ginger quickly takes over and is a dominating flavour.
