Handcrafted using the traditional French Champagne method (Méthode Champenoise or Méthode Traditionnelle), Sparkling Mead by
Northumberland Honey Company is the first of a kind in the UK.
Sparkling Mead is a great low sugar alternative to Champagne and Prosecco, sustainably created.
The method of production involves a second fermentation undertaken inside the bottle, giving bubbles synonymous with Champagne, whilst still retaining the delicate
floral notes found only in honey.
Production is undertaken using traditional methods and is labour intensive. Each individual bottle is hand disgorged, riddled and corked with a focus on providing jobs in the local area whilst
producing a high quality hand crafted product.
Floral Mead is in the 'Hydromel' class of meads, and can be known as, Made Wine, or Honey Mead Wine. This is a Mead that is quite wine like
in character and has been compared to a Reisling White Wine, and has similar earthy flavours to a Pinot.
All production takes place at our own meadery in Haltwhistle, making us the furthest north 'winery' in England undertaking the champagne method and the only beekeeper
producer of mead in this region.

Recently visited The Black Swan at Thirsk and knew the meal would be great being a michelin star restaurant. But very pleasantly surprised with the pairing with the mead, the best I have ever
tasted. Have just ordered a case for a friends birthday online! - June
Completely blown my mind, this stuff almost seems good for you! Low in sugar and tastes better than Champagne, I'm getting my next order in! - Sarah
