Welcome To Ninemaidens Mead
"A glass of good mead is still one of the beekeeper's best-kept secrets".
Ninemaidens' range of quality meads is carefully made with the finest honey. Our hives are situated across West Cornwall: from the verdant farmland around Truro, across the aromatic heathland of Kerrier and down to the sheltered meadows of southern Penwith. The key to good mead is good honey, and the key to good honey is good bee keeping. Ninemaidens ensures both! We believe that our highly acclaimed, award-winning meads are an excellent choice for the discerning wine drinker, whatever the occasion.
Experience Our Meads, Honey and Honey Products
The very same honey which gives our meads their distinctive multi-floral character is available either clear or set. Harvested from our own hives in Cornwall: from St Germoe to St Allen, with several of our apiaries located on organically managed land. The range of products has recently been expanded to include a luxurious Wholegrain Honey Mustard with a substantial honey content and well balanced taste.
