We at Kinsale Mead Co produce award-winning, world-class Irish meads in our state-of-the-art meadery on the Atlantic coast in County Cork where we couple traditional recipes with modern wine-making techniques in our family run business.
What is Mead? It’s the world’s oldest alcoholic drink, fermented from honey. You may know it as Nectar of the Gods, Met or Honigwein, Hydromiel, miód pitny or even Honey Wine.
We ferment our mead using carefully sourced, pure ingredients - raw honey and berries. They’re off-dry, crisp not sweet, 12% alcohol so refreshing, full of delicious, natural flavours and lighter than many wines. They’re low in sulfites, gluten-free with soft tannins and we are Origin Green Sustainability certified by the Irish Food Board.
Our meads are refreshingly different and versatile, either served on their own by the glass or as a lovely alternative to wine when paired with food.
They’re also popular with mixologists in a range of cocktails – Mead Negroni, Sangria and low alcohol, fruity cocktails
