A selection of the three most popular Cornish Mead wines, Blackberry, Elderberry and Liqueur. Cornish Liqueur Mead is a traditional Cornish mead. This higher strength version of ‘Cornwall’s Honeymoon Drink’ is produced from a grape base with honey flavourings to a long established secret recipe. With a distinctive flavour it can be served alone or with lemonade and ice.
Mead is probably the world’s oldest alcoholic drink. It is referenced in the ancient cultures of China, Greece and Egypt as well as those closer to home. Nordic and Celtic legends have gods and mortals alike knocking back Mead from cow horns, goblets or ceremonial bowls. Mead is often associated with magical powers and ritual importance, cropping up in Arthurian legend, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Tolkien and even Harry Potter!
HOW TO DRINK MEAD
Drink it warm, chilled or as a cocktail. Make it the base of a mixer or just add Champagne for a reinvigorated “Royale”. Mead mixology is creating a buzz, and Mead is even being poured with tasting menus. Mead can be perfectly paired with your favourite cheese board, especially goat’s cheese and blues. Give Mead a go with game or enjoy it as a dessert wine for the ultimate sweet treat at the end of a meal.
