Golden straw color. Attractive, complex aromas and flavors of saddle soap and mink oil, old leather boots on a haystack, pureed sweet potatoes, and raisin bread pudding with a satiny, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, layered, long finish that shows notes of orange blossom honeycomb, cashew milk, sultanas and figs, and delicate spiced yams finish. A remarkably earthy and multidimensional mead for the mead connoisseur and a good cigar.

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.
