Brilliant light ruby color. Delicate, earthy aromas of waxy honeycomb and baked cherries with an oily, lively, dry light-to-medium body and a warming, captivating, breezy marinated cucumber and nutshell finish. A very dry, savory mead for the table.

Pyment

Pyment is a particular sub-category of melomels, where the fruit in question is specifically: Grapes. It is important to note that the grape juice should be fermented with the honey, rather than blended in afterwards. ‘Mulsum’ is a historic variety of pyment that generally refers to the post-fermentation blend of wine and honey (and sometimes water or sea-water). Both red and white grapes may be used; ones made with white grapes are sometimes called "white mead." The best have enticing aromas of honey, custard and tropical fruits and are made in a dessert style.
