The Sunlight Liquor Gums ‘n’ Roses Sparkling Australian Mead is our South Australian drink of the week as we head into Christmas and the likelihood of summer appearing soon.

This drink by Sunlight Liquor went well with the croquettes, as part of our Dutch Christmas episode with Irma and Elise from The Little Dutch House.

Sunlight Liquor Gums ‘n’ Roses Sparkling Australian Mead tasting notes

The first thing that struck all of us with this Australian Mead was how subtle its flavours were.

It was almost like a fine, refreshing, sparkling spring water at first, until the array of gentle flavours arose from the palate.

Steve said it was like walking in a national park just after a summer rain, as the scents of various eucalypts and native flowers emerge and waft among the bushes.
