The Waterside Meadery, Penzance

A meadery is a winery that produces honey wines or meads.[1]

Particularly in Cornwall, a meadery can also refer to a type of restaurant that serves mead and food with a medieval ambience. A meadery would typically be in the style of a banquet hall, having wooden flooring, heavy wooden tables, and lit by candlelight with white-painted granite walls.

Meaderies that produce honey wines or meads are becoming more abundant in the US. According to a study by the American Mead Maker Association, mead’s producer community has exploded 130% since 2011, making it the fastest growing alcoholic beverage category in the US.[2]
