Kinsale Mead Co


Kinsale Mead Co are a family run business founded by Kate and Denis Dempsey in 2017 and located in Kinsale, Co Cork. They have created a delicious, refreshing range of new Irish drinks made from pure honey and the best of natural ingredients.

Their meadery is also open for tours and tastings where you can learn about the history of mead, taste some honey, see how they make their mead and finish with a tasting of a selection of meads.

Kinsale Mead Co has three main products all in 700ml bottles:

Atlantic Dry Mead: A traditional style mead made from raw orange blossom honey with a lovely citrus, floral aroma, lingering honey finish and almost no sweetness. 12% ABV

Wild Red Mead: A melomel or fruit and honey style mead, packed full of flavour, balancing the tartness of Wexford blackcurrants with sweetness from dark cherries with a smooth honey finish. 12% ABV

Hazy Summer Mead is refreshingly light fermented from pure honey muddled with a tumble of ripe summer berries. Strawberries and raspberries on the nose, blackberries, blackcurrant and cherries with a subtle blueberry and honey finish. 11% ABV.
