Today I’m finally opening a mead that’s been sitting for 7 months without being touched. I’ve just let this mead age and do it’s own thing, but now we’re ready to see how it is! It’s a capsicumel, so a mead that has pepper in it. It’ll be really interesting to see let this one
A sweet sack style mead, made by award winning English Winery Lyme Bay in collaboration with The English Heritage Company. Heritage mead is based on their traditional honey mead but with the inclusion on hard spices and citrus. The best selling sweet/sack mead on the UK market, its a must try for any mead fan.
Lyme Bay Rhubarb mead is a sweet sack style melomel mead, made by award winning English Winery Lyme Bay. Rhubarb mead is based on their traditional mead but with the inclusion on Rhubarb. The sweetest mead they do but in no way sickly. Reminiscent of rhubarb and custard sweets and is great with lemonade! Honey
Bourbon Bochet! Keep or Dump? I’m done with this one. From minute one, it’s not what I was hoping for. Will I make a bochet again? Probably, but not like this. It tastes pretty good though I have to admit, and Bourbon Bochet will live in infamy on the City Steading channel as a testament
Lyme Bay Tournament Mead is a sweet sack style of mead, made from a base of Lyme Bay’s traditional mead but with an added ginger kick. Best described as a mead with a hint of ginger not a ginger flavoured mead, the ginger gives it a full mid pallet with a deep and rich finish.
Lyme Bay’s Garden Mead is a sweet sack style of mead, made by award winning English Winery Lyme Bay. Garden mead is based on their traditional mead but with the inclusion on Mint.

Lyme Bay Chilli Mead is a sweet Capsicumel mead, made by award winning English Winery Lyme Bay. Chilli mead is based on their traditional mead but with the inclusion on Chilli. This is great but not what you’d expect, not a spicy chilli flavour, more a vegetal green chilli you get. Probably will appeal to
Lyme Bay Black Cherry Mead is a sweet sack style melomel, made by award winning English Winery Lyme Bay. Black Cherry mead is based on their traditional mead but with the inclusion on cherries. Traditionally known as Vikings Blood you’ll see a lot fo cherry meads about, this is a great “sour cherry” flavour, not
Black Currant Black Pepper Wine Bottling. Finally, it’s ready, and by the time you read this… much of it is… gone! We drank it! This is the third installment in this wine making series. We will rack it again, and put it into bottles. It’s now 3 months old and… it’s amazing. The making of
Bourbon Bochet – Out of Limbo. Back in October of 2018 we made a Bochet Mead. We had high hopes but little experience in making a bochet mead, and so… we made this dark, forboding, yet incredibly good smelling concoction, and let it ferment. Well, it fermented a bit, but nowhere near enough. We tried
It’s been about six months and I’m anxious to taste this delicious Metheglin made from Hibiscus leaves. By the way, I’m sorry about the quality of this video. I was a little distracted being outside on our back patio! Thanks for watching!
Today I’m trying my Raspberry Bochet Mead after it has been sitting and aging for quite some time. I’m trying to decide what I want the next step to be. I could let it age for awhile or I could go ahead and let it bottle age. Let me know what you think below and

Jalapeno Mead – Capsicumel – Is it finally done? Capsicumel, or Pepper Mead, even Chile Mead, is honey wine fermented with peppers or chiles, in our case, our home grown jalapenos. The peppers add heat, but more importantly an additional chile flavor you just can’t get any other way. It’s Brian’s favorite mead, by far.
