Gold color. Confected aroma of banana taffy with a supple, crisp, fruity sweet medium body and a tingling, crisp chocolate dipped marshmallow, starfruit, and grass finish. A very fruity, candied mead that will be fun in cocktails.

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.
