RACHELLE THE RABBIT - RACHELLE'S BANDUNG 2017

Region: Singapore

Blend: Honey, Rosebuds

Tasting Notes

Will a rose by any other name smells just as sweet? When we first tasted this rose-infused mead, the name of the famous Southeast Asian rose-syrup beverage came to mind. And surely, what better way to name this than calling it Bandung mead? Delightfully floral like a bouquet of roses, the mead is dry on the palate with a subtle flavour.

About the Winery

"Mead is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages in the world. Made by fermenting honey and water, it has long been associated with the Scandinavian culture and Vikings lore. For many centuries, mead was considered as a veritable elixir vita. At Rachelle The Rabbit, we are re-introducing this old tradition with a Modern Twist. Unlike wine, which depends on the type of grape varieties, mead is highly versatile. The taste can be as elegant as wine, but at the same time, the flavor profiles can be as versatile as beer just by adjusting the recipes and production techniques. As the first and only meadery in Singapore, we have many flavors that are inspired by the culture and heritage of the region. Rachelle’s Liquid Gold was named as a tribute to the spice trade; and Rachelle’s Bandung was named after the famous Southeast Asian beverage. Our production is batch based and artisanal in nature. It is similar to natural wines, and can be classified as minimum intervention style. We try as far as possible to present our mead in its most natural and organic form, with all the minerals, enzymes, vitamins and antioxidants in their original forms."
