Low-Alcohol Mead Beverages

Mead-Maker Gosnells Developed 0.5% ABV Gosnells Low Alc

— January 3, 2020 — Lifestyle
Thanks to rising interests in low- and no-alcohol products, consumers are being introduced to a range of reinvented beer, wine and spirits—and London-based meadery Gosnells is contributing to the movement with a low-alcohol mead of its own. The Gosnells Low Alc made with European honey takes the form of a 0.5% ABV, gluten-free beverage that boasts 60 calories per can.

By favoring the use of cans, Gosnells is modernizing mead and making it more accessible to the average consumer. By comparison, Gosnells' Citra Sea, Hibiscus, Hopped and Sour Draft Mead are packaged in 330-milliliter cans—the same size as the new low-alcohol mead—and boast 4.0% ABV. While the meadery's newest product is exceptionally low in alcohol, all of these options differ from high-alcohol meads packaged by the bottle.
