Ulster Mead Company
Food and Beverage
Production of mead and herbal wines. A new drinks company in Convoy is reviving age-old traditions with the launch of a sweet new tipple. Herbal wines by the Ulster Mead Company are widely thought to be Ireland's first herbal wines, and the first wines of this kind to be made in Donegal. Donegal may not have the climate of Tuscany or the Riveria, but that hasn't stopped two entrepreneurs brewing up a storm with inspiration from their homeland. Poland natives Jakub Blaszczok and Tomasz Rotuski teamed up to begin their passion project at the former Convoy Woollen Mills building. A unique aspect of wine-making process is the use of herbs, plants, and botanicals that are considered healthful, apoptogenic, and functional by herbalists.
