Garden Mint Mead
A mint-flavoured mead from the English Heritage-branded range produced by Lyme Bay Winery.
They do not appear to be selling this via the online English Heritage shop any more.
The colour is reasonably pale and the drink is very clear in the glass.
Mint is a fairly powerful aroma, so it’s no surprise that it dominates the nose somewhat. It is not overwhelming, however, and some of the honey notes still come through.
They have attempted to keep the taste a balance between the mint and honey flavours and they have been somewhat successful here. The mint lingers by itself on the finish and the drink definitely tastes of mint, which may be an acquired taste for some.
