Honey Wine, also known as "Mead", dates back to at least 7000 B.C. Honey wine is a mixture of honey, water, yeast, and sometimes other ingredients, depending on regional traditions. Honey comes in many different varietals, determined by the flowers the bees visit, each with unique flavors and aromas. Many different factors affect the taste of mead. These factors include the type of honey (over 300 varieties in the US alone!), additives (fruit, hops, & spices, even grapes!), yeast, and the aging process. The variety of honeys available in our store is reflected in our line of meads, from sweet and fruity to dry and earthy.
Currently we are offering 2 types of Mead and 2 types of Melomels. Stay tuned for our expanding menu!
