This year, mead has had something of a revival and Lyme Bay Winery’s Traditional Mead is the perfect bottle to whet your palate. Sweet and full-flavoured, this mead has tantalising notes of rich honey and a mouthwatering honeycomb finish. Enjoy it as a delicious accompaniment to casseroles and strong cheeses.
