This is an annual staple for us, with an order placed before every Christmas for the best part of a decade. Lyme Bay’s Christmas mead is arguably their star offering.
Metheglin is a variant of mead made traditionally with herbs and spices adding for additional flavours.
Metheglin has its origins in folk medicines. The Welsh for mead is medd and meddyglyn came from a combination of meddyg (healing/medicine) and llyn (liquor). This gives rise to the English word Metheglin today.
