This is our new release for 2017. The honey was produced from our apiaries in the Cotswolds. We have apiaries near to the Stour Valley, from the source close to Swalecliffe on the Oxfordshire border down through Traitors' Ford, Cherington, Brailes, Shipston on Stour, Halford, and Alveston.

For our first mead, we used honey produced during the 2016 nectar flow between April and August. Typically, the bees would have foraged on the oilseed and fruit trees in the spring, but the weather was cool and damp and didn't produce well. Towards the end of the season, the bees did well on borage, lime trees and blackberry.

You can enjoy this mead chilled, either on its own as an aperitif or with a variety of foods and cheeses. We tried it with some spicy dishes and thought it was a good pairing. Keeps well in the fridge after opening.  

Our tasters described the mead as light and delicately scented with honey, with a refreshing finish.
