This Irish mead is a delicious, traditional style dry mead, beautifully sharp with a nice citrus honey flavor. Best enjoyed chilled or on ice as a pre-dinner drink.

The mead has a lovely floral aroma and a long, lingering hint of honey with almost no sweetness; the perfect pairing of food with salty appetizers such as olives, salted nuts or seafood. Or try pairing with lemon tart.

Refreshing, different and definitely interesting, this is a great introduction to traditional meads. Kinsale Atlantic Dry mead has been rediscovered and reworked from its ancient form and fermented at the Kinsale mead with carefully sourced pure orange blossom honey from the green orange groves of southern Spain. A popular choice or gift for whiskey and honey lovers.

It definitely got the judges jumping out of their seats thanks to the many awards it has received so far.

And of course, since it's made with pure honey, it's naturally gluten-free.

Low sulfite content.

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.
