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.

Our flavors were created using the plants associated with the traditional seasonal Celtic holidays (select for details in box to right). In addition to flavorings, the plant materials provide all necessary acids, tannins and yeast nutrients.
