Traditional Honey Mead – Maxwell – 12.5% (750ml)

$20.00

This is original, traditional mead from Australia’s oldest commercial Meadery.  Mark Maxwell remains true to the recipe and techniques pioneered by his father. Though the package may have evolved over the years, the quality and purity of the mead has not. A benchmark for others to follow, it has been awarded the ‘best pure varietal mead’ gold medal at the International Mead Festival Competition in the USA.

Maxwell Honey Mead is made by fermenting pure South Australian honey, using one of the oldest recipes to create a beverage brimming with uniquely rich flavours and aromas. It is bright with golden hues and has floral beeswax and nutty marmalade-like aromas. It is refreshingly light on palate, subtle apricot and honey characters fill the mouth. Predictably sweet but not cloying.

Serve chilled over ice in a stemless wine glass

Maxwell Mead

Making wine from honey instead of grapes was first introduced to this country by Mark Maxwell’s father, Ken (1915 – 2004) whose devotion to the ancient craft created the benchmark for modern mead-making around the world. Today, Maxwell Mead is Australia’s favourite honey wine and the most successful range in the Southern Hemisphere. Not only is mead thought to be the oldest fermented drink originating in Northern China as far back as 7,000 BC, when the ancient Greeks discovered it, they called it ‘ambrosia’: the nectar of the gods. If you’ve never tried a honey wine, you couldn’t pick a better range. Because Maxwell Mead is Maxwell-made.
