Mead in the USA

Mead in the USA

Mead in the United States of America is growing very quickly, a new meadery is opening every three days on average in the USA and every seven days in the rest of the world.


Here’s three fun facts about mead in the States that you may not have known:


1. Melomel (Fruit infused mead) is the most popular style.

2. 67% of all meaderies in the USA are under 5 years old.

3. The US only had 30 commercial meaderies in 2003. Now there are more than 500 estimated to be active.

Just to bring things back to home a bit, mead in the UK is growing slowly. "The mead industry is only just beginning to take off in the UK, however, tactics appear to be the same has in the US] - a strong craft stance, with the addition of sophisticated glass enclosures which help highlight the premium nature of the product," - Charles Sissens (Consumer analyst at Global Data)

In our latest podcast episode we speak with Vicky (GotMead?), Jeff (Superstition), Matt (All Wise), Jeff (Liquid Alchemy) & James (Charm City) about Mead in the states and how the industry is so unique and awesome.

Why Choose Gosnells at your Local Shop?

Why Choose Gosnells at your Local Shop?

5 Reasons to Choose Gosnells:

1 - Gluten Free
All our meads are naturally gluten free and taste amazing!

2 - Natural
Our meads are only made using natural ingredients for example, Spanish Orange Blossom honey, hibiscus flowers, tarragon and even hops!

3 - Unique Flavours
Most of our meads are brewed purely with honey for flavour, this means that the taste is purely derived from the specific flowers the honey bees were foraging on at the time. That’s pretty neat!

4 - Terroir

Mead has a broad and exciting terroir, the honey can come from a single type of flower (monofloral) such as Lavender Honey or from a certain area known as single origin, such as Finsbury Park Honey where only specific types of flowers are available for the bees to forage. These factors can have a very strong impact on the flavour profiles.

5 - History
Mead has been around as long, if not longer than wine, beer and cider and has no reason to be taking a back seat in the drinks industry. We are London’s first meadery in over 500 years and we’re making a delicious, sparkling modern mead. Why not give it a try?
