Produced initially at Moniack Castle in the Scottish Highlands, Moniack Mead has a lovely, lingering, and smooth flavour with caramel and fermented honey elements.
The nose is slightly floral with a robust body of caramel aroma. The body is smooth and warming with a certain dryness, prominent honey and caramel flavours without being overly sweet, along with light floral notes.
What is mead?
Mead, the world’s oldest alcoholic drink, is created by honey and water fermented with yeast, sometimes containing various fruits, spices, grains, or hops. It is believed that mead was essentially first been discovered when accidentally some honey got wet. When raw honey gets moisture into it, there is a chance that natural yeast will start a fermentation process that converts the sugar in honey into alcohol. Nowadays, the yeast used in mead making is often identical to that used in winemaking.
