Dusty light ruby color. Aromas of circus peanut, macadamia gelato, meringue, and pine needle and bark with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and a seamless, subtle, medium-long orange blossom honey, nougat, hibiscus tea, and suede finish. A very interesting, creamy, fruit rosé wine like mead.

Metheglin

Metheglin is a traditional mead to which a mixture of spices and/or spices have been added. It is interesting to note that the word ‘medicine’ is derived from the word ‘metheglin’. While the honey character in both aroma & palate can be variable, the primary emphasis in this style is how well the spices and/or herbs are integrated into the beverage – they should not overwhelm the honey characteristics, but should be featured. A synergy of the individual ingredients is ideal.
