New Website

We are proud to announce the launch of our brand new website for our fabulous range of English Wines ... www.lymebayenglishwines.co.uk

1994 – 2014 Producing great English drinks for over 20 years

Twenty years ago, Lyme Bay Cider sold its first Jack Ratt and Lyme Bay Ciders from the small shop at Manor Farm. Since then we’ve grown and developed, and now trade as the Lyme Bay Winery, producing an award-winning selection of ciders, country wines, meads, fruit liqueurs and cream liqueurs. Our founding products are still some of the best sellers, but every year we develop new and innovative drinks to add to our range.

Tournament and Garden Mead gold lymebay logo

The Mead Renaissance

Mead, believed to be one of the oldest alcoholic beverages in the world, is undergoing a huge revival in popularity.

Mead – the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage.

The nectar of the gods, the golden liqueur of poets, lovers and kings and thought by many an elixir of health, fertility and longevity. Created from fermented honey, this smooth and sumptuous wine also has aphrodisiac properties, or so it is rumoured. Historically it was presented to newlyweds to enjoy over what we now call their "honeymoon". Buy our meads here

Have you tried it yet?

Our range of five award-winning meads are fermented, blended and aged on site using our unique blends of honey. It is these secret blends that create the rich, floral and pungent characteristics of our meads. Distinctively different and deliciously moreish – let us know which is your favourite.

Perfect for the summer ~ Garden Mead

A lovely infusion of mead and mint to highlight the eucalyptus character in the honey – refreshingly light and sweet. Stunning served over ice or as a summer cocktail – add lemonade or soda, cucumber and strawberries for a delicious alternative to Pimms. Also makes a great accompaniment to any dessert. Our Garden Mead won a Bronze Award at the 2014 'Taste of the West' awards.

The old time favourite ~ Traditional Mead

This is our BEST SELLING country wine. Over the last three or four years this wine has become the top seller in our range of classic wines. It has a devoted following of fans who wax lyrical over its fantastic flavour. See more…

A sweet, deliciously full-flavoured mead. A great accompaniment to strong cheeses and hearty casseroles.

Customer comments:

"I prefer the Traditional Mead. I have such a sweet tooth and it reminds me of liquid honey, it's delicious."

"I tried the Mead at Dover castle and it is warm and inviting and fresh and has a beautiful taste. It is like drinking liquid sunshine!"

"My favourite is Traditional Mead, because it is as smooth as a monk’s bald patch!"

"Traditional Mead: Warming and comforting to drink in front of a roaring fire while the rain lashes down outside!"

"I love the Traditional Mead. One of the best meads available."

"I feel the need, the need for MEAD...."

An added kick ~ Tournament Mead

Dark and sweet, beautifully married with a discreet hint of ginger. This mead is lovely served at room temperature with spicy food or strong cheeses. Perfect as a dessert wine – especially with ice cream. Our Tournament Mead won a Silver Award at the 2014 'Taste of the West' awards.

The local Tipple ~ Westcountry Mead

Lighter than the traditional mead, a medium sweet wine with sweet, spicy overtones. Lovely served at room temperature with spicy foods.

Christmas in a glass ~ Christmas Mead

Now even more popular than our Mulled Wine, this is the perfect festive tipple. A very special, festive, rich honey wine. Blended with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, lemon and orange zest, this mead is a perfect accompaniment to sweet Christmas treats or strongly flavoured cheeses. Serve with a warm mince pie or a piece of Christmas cake – heavenly!

The drink of the lairds ~ Moniack Mead

The famous Moniack Mead commands a huge following. Made by our sister company Highland Wineries, this mead is made using a time-honoured Scottish Highlands family recipe. Its depth of flavour from the fermented honey produces a smooth, lingering, delicious taste. Smooth and floral, with hints of caramel. For more information see the Highland Wineries website.

If you'd like to order both Moniack Mead and some Lyme Bay Winery products together, please telephone 01297 551355 or email your order to avoid a double carriage charge.
