Lanchester Mead is a medium sweet drink, blended with pure heather honey for a delightfully sweet and rounded flavour. Delicious served either on its own, or as a long drink with sparkling water or a light lemonade, or drunk in accompaniment to a fine piece of cheese. It is a traditional beverage that has been enjoyed the world over since around 7000 BC.
It is thought that the name Mead is derived from the word honey with strong similarities in various Cerilic, Latin and Slavic languages. There are even references in ancient Sanskrit texts to a sweet honey drink known as Madhu.
