Christmas Mead is our number 1 Christmas drink. We sold over 300 bottles last December!!!
A very special festive and rich honey wine. The finest mead gently blended with Christmas spices to make the perfectly smooth and mellow Christmas tipple. Serve warm like mulled wine. It’s Christmas in a glass! 10% 750ml
It’s made by fermenting honey with water, sometimes with fruits, spices, grains, hops etc. The words ‘mead’ and ‘honey-wine’ are often used interchangeably, but some cultures differentiate between the two. The defining characteristic of mead is that the main source of its fermentable sugar comes from honey. Mead is one of the oldest drinks knows to mankind. It’s also knows as honeymoon wine.
We also have a large selection of honey alcoholic drinks in store from whisky to rum.

Here is a taster of the Forest history
There can be few other places in England where the ancient landscape has remained so unchanged. 1079 when William The Conqueror named the area his ‘new hunting forest’, little could he imagine that nearly 1,000 years later his ‘Nova Foresta’ would still retain its mystery and romance.
The ancient system established by William The Conqueror to protect and manage the woodlands and wilderness heaths is still in place today through the efforts of Verderers, Agisters and Commoners – literally the judges, stockmen and land users of the forest.
His son, King William II is said to have been fatally wounded and died due to an arrow being shot at him in 1100AD by Sir Walter Tyrrell. You can visit the Rufus Stone, which is (supposedly) located in the exact place where this happened and apparently where his ghost still haunts!
