Meet the Mead Family
The question we hear the most when we talk about starting a Meadery is, what is mead? Mead is an alcoholic drink made by fermenting honey and water. Mead is also known as honey-wine. Growing in popularity mead is becoming more common across the Country showing up in wineries or independently as a Meadery.
Mead can be dry, semi-sweet or sweet. There are several varieties of mead, a few we are testing include:
Traditional mead is made with honey and water without any additional flavorings.
Metheglin is a mead made with spices or herbs.
Melomel includes a combination of honey and fruit. Examples we have been testing include the addition of aronia berries, elderberries and goji berries.
Every Mead we produce is considered a small batch and therefore availability changes frequently. It is always a good idea to contact us if you are looking for something specific. Typically we have 5-7 meads available at any given point in time. Visit us frequently to see what’s new at the Meadery. Cheers!
