    Another melomel from New Quay Honey Farm and this time with blackberry.

  2. Afon Mêl Honey Mead

    This is a so-called “Welsh honey mead” from the New Quay Honey Farm. They produce a variety of flavours, but this appears to be their “pure” honey mead offering.

    This is the raspberry offering from the New Quay Honey Farm. This makes it a melomel rather than a pure honey mead.

    Raspberry is definitely a dessert fruit, so it is unlikely you would pair this with any savoury food. I have seen one article claim that a dry raspberry fruit wine might pair with turkey or cornish game hen. This is definitely a mead and not dry, but perhaps it’s worth a try around Christmas!
