Product Description

For authentic Irish drinks, one need look no farther than Bunratty Meade Honey Wine, made from white wine with honey and herbs. The drink of ancient Gauls and Anglo Saxons, Mead was originally made by monks centuries ago from fermented honey and water. Mead soon made its way into the courts of the Four Kings of Ireland and no banquet was complete without it.

This honey-based drink was said to possess powers of virility and fertility, and it became custom for a bride and groom to drink Mead for one full moon after their wedding, giving birth to the word "honeymoon." In Ireland today, it is still tradition to toast the bride and groom with a glass of Meade when they depart on their honeymoon from the wedding feast.

Bunratty Meade Honey Wine is superb when chilled and served over ice. A mixture of wine, honey, and herbs, Meade is a completely authentic Irish drink.

  1. Honey Wine at its best! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2015

    Been drinking red wine since the mid 70's; recently started on some whites. All are in the 12-14% alcohol range. Had some of this Mead and was amazed at how smooth it is compared to grape wine. None of the bitter taste before or after a sip. Really something to add to your wine cellar for special occasions.

  2. Simply the best. 5 Star Review

    If you are going to drink a meade, then it should be Bunratty Meade. It is the only one I will sell at my bar in New Hampshire.

  3. Real Meade From the Land of Meade 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2014

    I was introduced to Bunratty Meade during a visit to Ireland in 2012. It was an eye-opening experience for one whose only previous exposure to meade was drinking the American brands (which I still enjoy for light casual occasions). Bunratty is a much more robust experience and should be reserved for special occasions with special friends. Why? Because they will love it and love you more for serving it. Be properly prepared with some appropriate music because it will make you will feel like singing Irish ballads with the first sip.

    It was a strong honey wine that smelled of honey yet had a taste like a hard liquor. Not preferred for a first Meade experience

  5. Strong Meade 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2013

    This Meade is very strong. 14.5% strong. It has a very strong alcohol taste to it. It is warm going down with a taste of honey. This is not a dessert Meade. This is more like the original flavor from the olden days. It is from Ireland and it shows in the flavor. Very good drink. If you want to tone it down to have a perfect lower intensity flavor, combine it with Chaucer's Mead Honey. Mixing both in equal proportions evens it out to a perfect combination.
