A “spritzy” Mead, much like a sparkling wine. The delicate taste is achieved by adding a small amount of honey just before bottling. Refreshingly light on the palate this Mead offers subtle honey characteristics and is a great compliment to a cheese platter or with that sweet special someone.
Rich and smooth with a “sweet to taste” but dry finish. Golden and fruity this mead has notes of melon and peach from Chenin Blanc grapes which gracefully complement the luscious, rich, creamy sweet notes of Banksia honey. Fresh acidity creates a long, delicate finish which can be drunk now or cellar for 2-3 years. This Mead is very versatile complimenting white fish, shellfish or game.
A fresh, light mead that has a delightful blend of honey and Swan Valley Muscat grapes. The aroma of this mead alludes to the privileged smells of a sweet beehive. Crisp grape flavours are softly sweetened by the Parrot Bush honey which lingers lusciously on the palate. A medium bodied mead that is ready to drink now. A perfect partner for those hot Summer days.
An elegant pale gold opulent mead that is mildly spiced with the aromatic flavours of ginger, cinnamon, cloves and rosemary. Our Spiced mead pulls together a great balance of acidity cutting through the sweetness to ensure a tingling long mild lager finish. This style of mead was traditionally served warm to enhance its aromas and warm the soul, however it is equally nice served chilled. Ready to drink now but will cellar well for two years, the spices becoming more complex.
The House of Honey’s “Shiraz Mead” has a ruby red core with vibrant purple hues. It is immediately sweet with mouth-filling, honey characters of butterscotch and crème caramel. These flavours dominate the front palate before melding seamlessly with plum, blackcurrant and blueberry derived from magnificent Swan Valley Shiraz and honey. Delicate acidity and soft tannins combine for a long fruity finish. Delicious chilled in summer, or room temperature in winter. Drink now or cellar with confidence for 2-3 years.
Banksia liqueur shows off the sweet soft overtones of Banksia honey with background notes of a fortified brandy spirit. This rich golden mead reflects the luminous colour of honey and is sticky to suit. A liqueur that simply melts in your mouth revealing butterscotch favours derived from its honey variety. Ready to drink now but will age well in the bottle to develop further in colour and intensity. Enjoy this liqueur served over ice.
PARROT BUSH LIQUEUR
Parrot Bush Liqueur is a bold complex liqueur aged in French oak for six months. This elegant liqueur has warm lingering flavours of spicy honey, roasted hazelnuts and finishes with hints of treacly toffee flavours. Darker in colour, it will age well if you can hold onto it.
