Producing wine from honey was first introduced to Australia by Ken Maxell of Maxwell Wines in the 1960s. His devotion to the ancient craft created a benchmark for modern mead-making around the world. The distinctive barrels are on show here with tangible orange spice cake, fresh cinnamon and positively meady moments on the palate. A herb infused honey finish makes for a deliciously different and unique dessert expression - also the most flavoursome of Cut Hill's releases. This distillery will be at its best bottling nearer to 50%.

Notes from the producers... A hive of flavours from the start; orange blossom nougat, cinnamon donuts and buttered green walnuts yield to a palate swarming with candied pistachio, spiced caramel, and leather-wood honey. Playful and long on the finish with lingering depth and drive of flavours, a truly singular expression fit for a queen. It would be a shame to dilute a dram of such character with anything but the buzz of good conversation.
