Lyme Bay Winery Traditional Mead is a sweet and delicious mead with rich and deep honey flavours.
It is made by the Lyme Bay Winery who are based at Shute, near Axminster, in Dorset. Lyme Bay Cider was founded 20 years ago in 1994 and has grown from a small shop selling cider to a large winery producing ciders, wines, meads and liqueurs. Mead is thought to be one of the oldest alcoholic drinks produced, dating back to Babylonian times, and it is thought by many to be an elixir of health, fertility and longevity. It is mentioned in both Beowulf and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. It is made by fermenting honey and water.
