Excellent Honey Wine from the United Kingdom
First had it at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival Years ago. Each year now I buy a bottle to take home. Wonderful over ice, as an aperitif, or just to enjoy all by itself.
Tasted at Epcot Food and Wine Festival
This wine was mellow and sweet. It is a must have and I am so excited to find this site so I can order some. This was my first sample of a meade but it will not be my last experience!!
Wanted a high alcohol sweet wine....
was not expecting this but i do believe i have a new St. Patties Day sweet treat with a kick! this stuff is fab! makes me want to move to Ireland home of Genius! Did not expect this while Wine tasting! i would not classify this with wine but maybe a Super light whiskey kinda like southern comfort but super honey sweet.

This IS real mead
For all you haters out there that keep saying that this is not real mead...I've been to Ireland and this is the EXACT mead that they serve there. Yes it is sweet and does not taste at all like wine, but just on those facts, don't say it's not real mead.
the Caddy of meads
If you think meads all taste like the stuff at Ren Faires, think again! Most places only stock the nasty stuff, but if you find a bottle of Bunratty, GRAB IT! Very smooth, not-too-sweet but strong honey-flavor, great velvety flow on the tongue. Excellent served chilled or warmed. Can also be mulled for a wonderful Yuletide drink. Also great with a few slices of lemon (or wedges) in it - again, warm or cold. Like another reviewer said, we also try to save it for special occasions, but once the bottle's opened, it vanishes. I've converted several "mead haters" with this one.
Absolutely wonderful. Sends a sweet honey glow throughout your whole body. Brilliant Stuff.
irish honeymoon fertility drink?
I dont know about the statement that it makes you fertile but it taste great with an ice cube floating in it and it has more of a punch than you would think. a friend brought this back from ireland this past weekend and she said we should have a sip and save it for special occasions...well the occasion got more and more special until we had emptied the bottle. its made from honey and is sweet but not cloyingly it has a smoothe as honey finish and a warm glow. and i think i will be asking about the case price for this.try it for your next special occasion,you wont be sorry.
Great for dessert or anytime
Nicely sweet but not cloying like some dessert wines. Honey flavor/aroma is very pleasant.
5 stars? You're Kidding!
I don't think it deserves 5 stars but not 1 star either. It clearly states it's flavored wine. It tastes like church wine, and the only honey flavor is the aroma right before it hits your tongue, then it's just sweet/tart white wine tasting more like church wine than anything else. Not bad if it's real cold and you want to get ripped, but not 5 stars and not THAT bad either... Probably would wash down a nice greasy burger really well.
