Everything You Mead to Know
What is Mead?
Mead is alcohol made from honey, water & yeast. We focus on small batches with local honey & REAL fruit. We only ferment the honey (not the fruit) to ensure all alcohol is coming from honey.
YES, Vikings did drink mead.
How Do You Drink & Store Mead?
Mead can be enjoyed at 45 degrees (refrigerator temp) or served at room temp when it's not sparkling. You're welcome to mix spirits, ice or mixers - but we prefer it STRAIGHT.
To store your mead, we recommend keeping it in a cool, dry place, like a wine fridge, or a closet, where temperatures don't change and sunlight isn't hitting the bottle. Once opened mead is best enjoyed in 1-3 days, kept in fridge with bottle stopper, otherwise carbonation starts to slip out.
Otherwise like wine, mead can age, although we like to enjoy within a year.
How Does Shipping Work?
We ship to 42 states in the U.S. Alaska & Hawaii have higher shipping costs due to the voyage.
