10049 Mead
Evening, lads.
I was wondering what the best brand of mead would be to buy in London?
I've heard that pic related is quite lovely.

I bought this for a friend and it was lovely. They do lovely gift sets on that site too.

Lindisfarne mead isn't actually Lindsifarne mead, it's from Berwick. It used to be from Lindisfarne but ent no more.

The National Trust does a few meads, they're quite tasty. A tenner each though unfortunately.

There is a village near Milton Keynes called Hardmead. It sounds like the perfect place for a fantasy themed pub but alas the village in question doesn't even have a pub and is little more than a collection of farms.
Sage for irrelevance.

Is it actually worth looking for this? Last I heard from a beardy ale drinker type was that mead was rather bland and disappointing.

It tastes like white wine, except if it had honey mixed into it. Pretty nice I think. Never listen to a real ale twat.

It's nothing like wine... And the closest to wine it can get is really thin mead which isn't mead at all.

Spiced mead would make a great Christmas drink.

As a real ale fan I'd like you to not paint us all with the same brush... most of us just like good beer. Then again I'm not middle aged, fat or bearded so I'm hardly the stereotype.

I recommend Lyme Bay's Traditional mead. I've found other meads to just taste like very sweet alcoholic honey but this has a slightly dry taste and some interesting flavours.

Don't suppose you lads know if there are any UK supermarkets which are known to stock mead? I had a look at my fairly large local Co-Op and they didn't have any, and I'd like to know before I make the trek to a fancy offie.

The only shop I've known to stock mead is on Park street in Bristol. It's called Guild, and is basically what the Guardian would look like if it was a shop.

I knew someone who supplied to the guild a good number of years back. Apparently they stuck on a 100% markup, which left my acquaintance feeling sufficiently aggrieved that he never did bother making things again and went into a regular job.
To reiterate, this is getting to be a seriously long time ago, and I'll confess that they do sell nice things. Although if anyone's after nice chocolate in the Bristol area, going anywhere except Guilbert's is indefensible.

A lot of places sell at heavy markup, just compare the cost of a decent scotch in Scotland vs England. Sure there are delivery costs but that shouldn't double the price.

Is scotch cheaper in Scotland? It's certainly a damn sight cheaper in the US ironically enough, because their alcohol duty is nowhere near as exorbitant as ours. I can generally pick up a bottle there for $N that costs £N here. Considering all the exportation costs etc, that's quite remarkable.

> double the price.

Wait, what? Scotch is half the price up there? Time to start packing my bags.

Oh do stop being so objectionable, it's quite unwarranted. I was at home this weekend and I'm proud to say that my twelve-year old brother (>18. Big gap. Because reasons.) is now moving beyond the 'being facetious and picking holes in things for the sake of it' phase.

That goes both ways mate. You said something obvious. I didn't say you shouldn't have said it and don't think we'd be better off if you hadn't. I just pointed out in the humorous way we are accustomed to on britfags that your remark was completely obvious and maybe ignores wider complexities. No offence was meant and just as you might say it was uncalled for, I could describe your comparison of me to a child in the same way. It's not like we are having a conversation in person and my post had the power by itself to derail proceedings. So yeah, stop being so defensive.

I've bought mead in Morrison's and Asda.
