loxwood meadworks 100% pure mead

At a recent out of town gathering, I met the director and mead-evangelist Danny Bacon. Danny has his connection to the world of medieval England at his family farm where people come to shake off their contemporariness and travel backwards through time to when folks drank mead, jousted and launched cannonballs at each other.

However, the mead sample he sent me couldn't be further from all of that. The bottle and labelling are in the manner of premium wine. It has a very cool feel to it.


Full straw gold colour. Honey caramel, even quince jelly nose. Great fresh acidity, yet a fatness to it and the honey character that is still there but never dominates. I am surprised, as the acidity gives it structure and elegance familiar in moreish wines.

You have to try everything at least once and I suspect many party people would not spot it as a non-wine beverage and would certainly not refuse a refill.

I expect it would be delicious with creamier curries and other dishes with white sauces.
