    For Christmas we received 10 bottles of mead from cousin and this is the BEST of the bunch. The flavor is wonderful! Fruity, sweet, flavorful, light, a warm you up kind of goodness. Happiness in a glass. Well worth the prices.

    Absolutely fantastic. Sweet but not over powering with a wonderful honey after taste. Bring this to a gathering of friends and be instantly envied for your taste in beverages.

    My father bought 9 bottles of mead and out of the the 9 this one was our favorite! Sweet and strong!

    This is the reason I started drinking mead. The King’s Mead is delightfully sweet and has a nice kick to it. It is very easy to drink and goes well with food or by itself.

    My step-son and I have always wanted to try Mead. I was excited when I found your website, and immediately placed an order. I was not disappointed, and will be making more purchases soon.

    Absolutely amazing! I’ve been a long time wine drinker, but had long wanted to try mead. This blew me away! I’ve tried other meads from this site, but this is by far my favorite. Absolutely delicious, smooth, great alone or with a meal, and truly fit for a king!

    Hands down the most delicious mead I’ve ever had. It has the perfect amount of sweetness, and we’ve enjoyed it with multiple food pairings. It’s great alone, even at room temp (though chilled is better). If you’re on the fence about which mead to start with, you absolutely cannot go wrong with the King’s Mead. Shared a bottle at the office and everyone thought it was amazing as well. 🙂

    This was my first foray into the world of mead, and it was a fantastic first step. I’m not a fan of wine, but the taste from the honey makes this a true delight for the palate. All who were able to sample this agreed that it is phenomenal and we all look forward to the next bottles that we try! The customer service and shipping time was also top notch. It arrived quickly and packaged well, giving me no concerns about it possibly breaking in transit in the future. Thank you very much.

    All of the other meads are delicious, don’t get me wrong. But this one is spectacular. It’s sweet without being overpowering, but still has a very rich flavor. If you’re looking for a truly great mead that can get you hooked, this is the one.

    This is a great mead to start with and usually what we give our friends and family when they show interest in mead. This along with the dark are two things we always keep on hand. It is sweet and you can taste the honey, but it is not too sweet (which is usually what turns people off to mead). I also have never had the mead headache when drinking Hidden Legend Mead that you get when you drink other meads.

    We have tried mead from so many other brands and hands down Hidden Legend is the best.

    I personally enjoyed the sweetness of this mead, yet it didn’t overpower my palate as some sweeter drinks do. The smooth rich taste of honey gives this mead a wonderful balance that both my fiance and I loved. (Her a little too much, I probably only had about a quarter of the the bottle, no idea what happened to the rest wink wink) Anyways I digress, this is a wonderful mead and I highly recommend it.

    The King’s Mead was the first I’ve tried from Hidden Legends Winery and it is hands-down a winner! This mead is a perfect balance of dry and sweet and brings out the essence of what good mead should be. If you want a tried and true, keep on hand, go to mead, this is the one to stock up on. I am certainly looking forward to buying many more bottles myself!

    My name is Richard Shaughnessy, I am 2 generation from Cork Ireland. When I go back to my island ( Ireland) and we drink wine, This is as close as it gets.
    Do to lack of sun and too much rain in parts of the land, grapes don’t grow well. Fermenting honey works well. It can be served with lamb, mutton or smoked eel.

    I honestly don’t know why culture stopped drinking this in favor of wine. It’s got all the good parts of wine without having to pretend that you like the taste of vinegar or know what it means if something tastes “oaky.” I have quite the sweet tooth myself, and I found it pleasant and fruity, and when I shared this mead with friends who don’t like things as sweet, they also remarked how the sweetness of the honey wasn’t
    cloying and let you experience a lot of the other flavors of the drink as well. Big fan. Definitely reordering.

    I bought this one to give it a try and it was delicious. I finally convinced my wife to try mead, and now she wants me to place another order because she loved it. The King’s Mead is going to be enjoyed by everyone, but especially those, like my wife, who prefer sweeter wines. She was afraid that mead was going be very dry, and she was pleasantly surprised.

    Super great! My first buy from this company and I was not disappointed! Sweet and smooth, with the tiniest bit of tartness to keep it from being overly sweet. Loved it!

    My favorite mead! On the sweet side but not overly so. Do yourself a favor and get at least 2 bottles. Probably more.

    I enjoy this mead sooooo much! I buy this “Nectar of the Gods” buy the case. I always give a bottle to all my “special friends”!
    I have tried at least a half a dozen different brands and Hidden Legend surely is the best of the best!

    We purchased Pure Honey Mead, Dark Mead, and the Kings Mead. The Kings was by far our favorite and the Pure honey was also very good. The dark was not as sweet , more for a dark beer drinker. We like your product & plan on trying more.

    I don’t know much about mead but am wanting to learn. From the description I thought this would be sweeter, I found it more of a savory beefy flavor than sweet. I am interested in trying new meads but will need to be more selective as I am not very much enjoying this bottle.

    A very good mead, with an almost oak-y quality under the honey. Sweet, but not kick-you-in-the-face-sweet, and not too dry. I’ve had two bottles now and I’m looking forward to trying other varieties and flavors!

    Several friends and I are crafting our own mead and ciders, and we needed a standard to judge our progress by. I purchased the King’s Mead for this purpose. From the first taste we knew that our work was going to be cut out for us if we wanted to produce a mead as fine as this one. It also quickly became obvious that I should have ordered more than one bottle, as this is a delicious, fragrant, and lovely mead.

    We will be putting together another order soon, several bottles minimum… though in all honesty, I wish I could just buy everything in the store and have it replenished monthly!

    The King’s Mead is easily the best mead I’ve ever had. The sweetness is perfect – not too much, not too little. Every time I order now I order at least 2 or 3 bottles every few months!

    I loved the Kings Mead. It reminded me so much of the Mead I enjoyed in Ireland at a Castle Banquet. What a wonderful fun evening it was.

    I’ve just recently starting drinking mead, so I’ve been trying out as much as I can from this site. I’m not quite there yet, but I’ll try it all eventually. So far I would have to say this is the best of all I tried here. It’s a bit sweeter than pure honey mead and goes down really smooth. I’ve given a few bottles to friends, but I’m just going to play the selfish only child card and keep this one to myself.

    The King’s Mead is one of the best ones on the site—I have tried 6 types from this company and keep coming back to this one. I regularly bring a bottle of this stuff to my D&D meetups and it’s a huge hit with everyone there, too. If you’re only going to try one–this is a good place to start.

    I was always interested in trying mead, but I never was a huge wine drinker. I took the plunge and tried The King’s Mead. Wow, this stuff is great. I have now tried several meads and this one is my go to. Just the right level of sweetness. Highly recommended!

    Wow, this is nice! It’s a more “typical” sweet mead, but there’s these underlying complex flavors and spices that make it really unique and wonderful!
