Clear yellow straw color. Spicy aromas and flavors of spiced peach, turmeric tea, green tomato relish, and cologne with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and an effortless, intriguing, medium-length spiced kiwi, spiced nuts, and tart green apple finish. A nice delicately spiced mead that will complement Indian cuisine.

Metheglin

Serve in a Goblet
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.
