A light fruit mead made from six berries to celebrate the long summer days. Honey intertwined with a pile of ripe summer berries. Aromas of strawberries and raspberries with a beautiful deep pink color.

Kinsale Hazy Summer Mead (11% ABV) is a wonderful, fruity, dry berry mead with generous strawberry and raspberry aromas, a lovely dose of summer berries and a smooth, soft honey finish.
Blackberries, black currants and cherries on the palate and blueberries and wild honey on the finish.

Perfect served slightly chilled alone or in a shared pitcher with ice and frozen fruit. Like a glass of summer in any weather. This deliciously light and fruity mead is a refreshing alternative to light red or rosé wine. It is fermented from pure honey mixed with a bunch of ripe summer berries with almost no sweetness. A popular choice or gift for cocktail and beer and gin drinkers.

It pairs beautifully with spiced chicken wings, light curries or salads with raspberry vinaigrette, or try it with honey-glazed ham or traditional roast turkey. For dessert, we love it with berry cheesecake.

Like other Kinsale Mead Co meads, Hazy Summer Mead is made in Ireland's first mead for 200 years in the historic and food-loving town of Kinsale on the Wild Atlantic Way in West Cork.

Awards came quickly for this interesting reworking of an ancient drink, winning Gold at the Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards at the International Mazer Cup, Silver at the European Mead Madness Cup and a 1 star (Simply delicious) Great Taste Award.

Producer Kinsale Mead

Artisanal production of mead from the Irish county of Cork

Artisanal production of mead from the Irish county of Cork. Kinsale Mead is produced in West Cork, at the family mead farm in Barrack Lane, Kinsale (near the site of the Battle of Kinsale in 1601). Each batch is carefully blended, fermented and matured with care and passion and an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Pure honey, local water, yeast and also various fruits are used in this authentic mead, as is traditional.

Kinsale Mead Co was founded by Kate and Denis Dempsey in 2016 to revive the ancient art of mead making and create a world-class range of light and refreshing drinks. They use the best natural ingredients and make their meads dry and vinous with care and passion.

In 2016, they decided to start the journey to open their own business and revive the tradition of mead making in Ireland after 200 years.

They did a lot of research, tried a lot of meads from Europe and America and read a lot of books, both modern and historical. They started lots of small batches at home and tried different honeys, different yeasts, and different combinations of fruits, spices, and herbs. They kept improving the recipes. It was also very important to them how mead goes with food.

Meads have won an amazing number of awards in just a few years, including gold at The International Mazer Cup, which is something of a mead Olympics. They were also delighted with the Irish awards, gold and silver at Blas na hEireann, gold from the Free From Food Awards as the mead is naturally gluten free. They then won the prestigious 2-star (Outstanding) Great Taste Award, a British competition with literally thousands of entries at a very high level, as well as gold and silver at the European Mead Madness Cup. They were also awarded Drink of the Year by the Irish Food Writers' Guild. In the family mead farm, they simply produce world-class mead.

Kinsale (Cionn tSáile, meaning 'Head of the Tide') is a beautiful historic seaside town in West Cork, situated in a safe anchorage where the River Bandon flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Today it is known for its historic street, colorful buildings, many fabulous cafes, gastropubs and restaurants, bookstores, yachting, fishing and world-class golf.
