The essence of a Heather moor in a bottle. Heather Sparkling Mead reflects the pinnacle of the beekeeping season, the annual migration to the Heather Moors. The resulting Sparkling Mead is not only the longest to produce but carries the deepest flavour profile of any of the Sparkling Meads.
Honey: Heather Honey gathered by the bees of Northumberland Honey Co on the Northumberland Heather moors in the 2017 season.
Dryness: Brut with 10g/l residual sugars. However due to the power of Heather honey this comes across very well and gives the perception of sweetness and is the sweetest offering in the range.
Awards: Mazer Cup International, Speciality Open 2021: Gold
Heather Sparkling Mead is created from our best Heather Honey which in turn creates a truely stunning Heather honey mead.
Production follows the same traditional method that is used to create the usual Sparkling Wine, but instead of using grapes uses heather honey to create the alcohol. Finishing at 12% abv which is on par with most sparkling wines and Champagnes.
Heather Honey used to create this mead, is hard won, gathered during the bees annual migration to the Heather moors in August. The production of Heather honey is very much dependent on the weather and conditions of the season, therefore in some years there may be very little honey produced indeed
