Dark ruby garnet color. Aromas and flavors of melted honeycomb and chocolate, dried wild berries in greek yogurt, and heirloom tomato chutney with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium body and a medium-length finish with accents of craisin, sour cherry shrub, marinated beets, and white pepper finish. A nice combination of fruity and savory notes here.

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.
