Jack Ratt Traditional Mead is a sweet and delicious mead packed with rich and deep honey flavours. 

Jack Ratt Traditional Mead is made by the Lyme Bay Winery who are based at Shute, near Axminster, in Dorset. Lyme Bay Cider was founded 20 years ago in 1994 and has grown from a small shop selling cider to a large winery producing ciders, wines, meads, liqueurs and has, more recently, expanded greatly into English Wines.

Mead is thought to be one of the oldest alcoholic drinks produced, dating back to Babylonian times, and it is thought by many to be an elixir of health, fertility and longevity. It is mentioned in both Beowulf and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. It is made by fermenting honey and water with yeast.

Jack Ratt meads are names after a famous 18th Century local smuggler called Jack Rattenbury who was known as the “Rob Roy of the West”. In 1837, after a life at sea as a fisherman, pilot, seaman and smuggler, Rattenbury wrote the book “Memoirs of a smuggler, compiled from his diary and journal: containing the principal events in the life of John Rattenbury, of Beer, Devonshire; commonly called “The Rob Roy of the West”.

Lyme Bay’s classic, original mead.
