Bright golden yellow color. Attractive aromas and flavors of fresh crusty key lime pie, custard, and delicate spice with a soft, shy, dry-yet-fruity light body and a smooth, brisk lime and ginger seltzer and sweet potato finish. A fun, light and fruity mead that nails the graham crust flavor of a Key lime pie.

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.
