Brendan Hilferty from Sparrow & Vine is the man behind Project B, a bone dry and gently sparkling mead. Made from locally sourced raw honey, the mead is naturally fermented in small batches and only diluted with pure water.
It has quite delicate aromas of honey with floral, citrus and spice notes. The palate is intense and long flavoured offering honey and waxy notes, a fine bead and crunchy, fennel and spice layers too. It has remarkably fresh, natural acidity and even when the bubbles dissipate it opens up and offers greater complexity.
We think it’s a terrific aperitif style that can also match well with a wide variety of food, especially vegetable and seafood dishes. - Brendan Hilferty
