Ruby color. Aromas and flavors of lingonberry preserves, delicate honey on crumpets, and raisins with a silky, vibrant, effervescent, dryish light body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish. A delightful Mead with joyful, fruity flavors and a dry refreshing palate; a lovely toaster for the holidays and other celebrations.

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.
