I'm marrying a couple next month who are bringing a horn to use in their ceremony... in a ritual. They had someone making mead for it, but the seal broke and they found themselves meadless!
I wondered if I could source them some Scottish mead. I found a producer, but then I wondered if I could source some here on the Isle of Skye.
I put a message out on Instagram... no luck.
And then I had an idea... mead is made from honey right? I put a post out on a local bee keepers group. And... someone replied... they had mead they'd made in 2020 and bottled last year from their own honey bees 🐝 🐝🐝
How cool is that? Skye mead!
I asked if they'd be up for selling me some and told them what it was for... they messaged back to say I could have a bottle no charge!
This community is so awesome! 💗
Today I collected it... leaving a wee gift in return... and combined it with a walk to the stunning Point of Sleat with friends! I reckon you'd need a good community to manage to live out here!
