Brewed by Lurgashall Mead
Sold as Spiced Mead in the UK and as Metheglin Mead in the USA.
Honey sweet mead infused with a secret blend of herbs and spices to a 16th century recipe.
Beloved of Queen Elizabeth I, Metheglin is a sweet honey mead infused with a complex blend of herbs and spices.
Metheglin is derived from the Welsh word meddyglyn, meaning “medicinal liquor”, as healing herbs were often stored as metheglin so they would be available over winter.
The aroma of Lurgashall Metheglin is enormous. The herbal and spicy character, in particular the resiny character of thyme & rosemary, are fully evident on the palate as well. Clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg intermingle with the sweet honey flavor. Its big body, underscored by about 13.5% alc./vol., ends in a sweet-spicy-slighly tart /dry finish. Intriguing and mysterious.
