Sparkling Mead

 

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

 

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. 

 

You can book a tasting flight at the meadery, or buy mead online Sparkling Mead and  Floral Meads.
