Kinsale Mead Co was founded by Kate and Denis Dempsey in 2016 to rediscover the ancient art of mead making and to create a delicious, refreshing new Irish drink. We lovingly hand-craft each batch with care and passion and source the best natural ingredients. We make their meads at their new meadery in Kinsale, the first in Ireland in almost 200 years.
We have three main meads that are refreshingly different:
- Atlantic Dry Mead (12% ABV), fermented off dry from raw orange blossom honey, with beautiful citrus notes
- Wild Red Mead (12% ABV), fermented from Wexford blackcurrants, forest honey blend and dark sweet cheeries.
- Hazy Summer Mead (11%), fermented from mix of summer fruits and honey, with lovely flavours of raspberry, strawberry,
blackberry, blueberry and honey.
