Mead & Other Drinks
Drinking mead is like sipping liquid sunlight. Mead is an ancient form of brewing; possibly older than ale, beer or grape wine. Mead has long been drunk as a spiritual act to celebrate the holidays and used to fill the wedding cup. Today mead is growing in popularity as people rediscover the pleasures of this honey wine brewed from the nectars of millions of flowers.

Blackberry Mead is a real treat, based on Blackberries & Rosehips with Orange Peel, Lemon Verbena & Cardamon counternotes.
Cherry Gal is a delicious Cherry Melomel spiked with Galengal. Served when sweet, the honey plays against the sour cherry flavor for a splendid drink.
