Bemuse Tarragon, Basil and Hops Sparkling Mead (0.5% ABV)
Tarragon, Basil & Hops infused Mead brewed with Heather Honey Heather honey is made from nectar collected from the tiny purple bell-shaped flower of the common heather plant. Heather honey, from the blossoms of Ling Heather, is rare. It comes from only heather found on the moors of Scotland, England, and Ireland. It has a tangy, pungent, smoky, and mildly sweet taste and has a pleasant aftertaste.

Inspired by nature, brewed, crafted and canned in the UK, Bemuse is an exciting alternative to beer, cider or wine and can be enjoyed all year round, on its own or as an accompaniment to food.
