Gosnells London Mead ~ P511
Mead | 330ml | ABV 5.5%
This is our signature, thoroughly modern take on mead. Made with Spanish Orange Blossom honey, blended with water and then fermented through to 5.5%, our signature mead is light, crisp and refreshing.
This is Tom’s first mead, and the one closest to his heart. What’s amazing about honey is that alongside it’s characteristic sweetness you also find a host of delicate floral and herbal notes from the nectar the bees have collected. By using Orange Blossom honey in our mead, we get all the flavor of the nectar from an orange grove in bloom in each bottle.
What Sommelier Wine awards said:
“One of this year’s surprises: the lure and potential of mead. ‘Lovely nose, honeyed, floral and fresh, though lighter on the palate with a long finish,’ said Caroline Brangé of 28°-50° Mayfair, with Charles Pashby-Taylor of Dabbous agreeing: ‘Fresh honey aromas, lovely and refreshing, with a nice gentle, happy finish.’ ‘Hawthorn flowers, banana and ginger spice,’ said team leader Angela Reddin: ‘Could pair with halloumi or lighter scallop dishes.’ Indeed.”
