Kinsale Mead Co. Tours. Spend an hour on an entertaining, fun experience learning all about Mead. Mead is known as the honeymoon drink, fermented from honey, it is the world’s oldest alcoholic drink dating back as far as 6,000 B.C. The Meadery Tour starts with an overview of Mead’s long and glorious global history. We’ll talk about the bees and then walk through the production area.
You’ll see our honey and sample some, and where our meads are fermented, matured and bottled. You will be able to taste four meads in our tasting room including some only on offer in the meadery, understanding each mead’s flavour profiles and how best to serve and pair with different foods.
Approx 4-minute drive and 11-minute walk from Actons Hotel.
