COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional mead made with orange blossom honey. Aged for 18 months in oak barrels. For the first release in our Miel de Garde line, we used the highest quality orange blossom honey available, then aged it in a neutral American oak barrel for 18 months. The result is a bright aromatic, decadent mead made for sipping. Serve at cellar temperature.

Leighton (20602) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Courtesy of Matt and Leighton! Pours clear yellow, no head. Glorious honey and suggestions of citrus. Big sweet flavor but not cloying, rich honey, some light dry straw. Full bodied with no carbonation. Light warmth to finish, rich honeycomb, touches of bread. Delicious stuff. Very rich and decadent but exceedingly drinkable. Lovely.
