Ninemaidens Cornish Gwires Distilled Mead is a crystal clear, vibrant drink with a floral, honeyed bouquet and a warm rounded finish, 40% abv. whilst retaining a subtle honey after-taste.
The name “Gwires”, pronounced gwi’rez, is taken from the Cornish language; a word meaning alcoholic spirit. The essence of all Ninemaidens drinks lies in the delicacy of our unique Cornish flora. From this nectar source, our honey is fermented to produce mead of the highest quality, and thereafter distilled into a clean, honey scented spirit.
Sold in 35 cl bottles, it is inevitably compared and categorised alongside classic single malt whisky, calvados, eau de vie and justifiably so.
