The spiced mead is a favourite, it has a bouquet of honey and citrus, but with the added zest of cinnamon, cloves & nutmeg. These spicy characters are carried through to the palate where they fill the mouth with a complex and satisfying array of flavours. Traditionally served hot (not boiling) to enhance its aromas and warm the soul.

Maxwell Spiced Mead is made by fermenting pure South Australian honey with the secret family recipe of spices. The result is a pale amber mead with golden hues. It has heady aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, with honey and citrus undertones. Think liquid hot cross buns. These spicy characters are carried through on the palate where they fill the mouth with a complex and satisfying array of flavours.

Best served warm in a brandy balloon or stemless wine glass. A campfire favourite.

Making wine from honey instead of grapes was first introduced to Australia by Mark Maxwell’s father, Ken (1915 – 2004) whose devotion to the ancient craft created the benchmark for modern mead-making around the world. After a decade or more of experimentation with different honey’s and yeasts the famous Maxwell Honey Mead was born. The first commercial label was released in 1966 and with it, the birth the Australian mead industry. Today, Maxwell Mead is Australia’s favourite honey wine and the most successful range in the Southern Hemisphere.

In the early 1970’s Ken Maxwell began selling his famous honey mead with an envelope of spice to allow mead drinkers to ‘mull’ their mead at home. These days Mark Maxwell does all the hard work for you as the now famous ‘Spiced Mead’ is made to a secret and finely honed family recipe.
