Welcome To St. Elvan Mead

Handcrafted Norfolk Amber

Long, slow, small-batch produced mead made from fermented honey. Mead is one of the oldest drinks in the world.

At St Elvan we re-create an authentic monastic mead in the East Anglia tradition (our name is a tribute to the creators of the recipe).

Surprisingly, mead is no longer as widely consumed as it once was. Our mission is to take the brew back to the people!

Our History

Produced commercially since 2016, our flagship product is Norfolk Amber Mead: high quality, small batch produced mead which is Norfolks’ answer to sherry.

A pleasant, honey-based tipple for sipping after dinner it may be enjoyed with desserts or cheese, or served on ice as a pre-dinner warm-up.

It is the mission of owner John Costin, an enthusiast of mead for 20 years, to bring back this ancient product for the enjoyment of the public.

For too long beautifully created, small batch produced mead has been unavailable to many people.
