Our Bourbon Barrel Buckwheat is a hearty mead made with New York state buckwheat honey. The dark rich flavors of buckwheat honey give this mead a very unique and enjoyable flavor. We condition this mead for over six months in Jack Daniel’s barrels to balance the intensity of the buckwheat with the flavor and aroma of bourbon and oak.
Our original Ginger Libation is a delicious pre-Prohibition, Caribbean-style ginger "beer." We produce this fine beverage using all organic ingredients including Costa Rican pineapple juice, lemon and lime juice and lots of fresh ground ginger. It is deceptively light and refreshing at 9% abv and makes a wicked mixer for fine tropical cocktails.
Real Ginger Beer had faded into obscurity UNTIL Now!
Artisan Beverage Cooperative's Ginger Libation is the real deal.
Our Valley Cyzer is a company favorite! We make this mead using fresh pressed apple cider from Pioneer Valley orchards coupled with local, late season, wildflower honey. This mead showcases the qualities of the region's best apples and honey, and we are very proud to make this delicious mead every apple season.
Our award-winning Whiskey Cyzer is our Valley Cyzer that had been aged in Bully Boy whiskey barrels. The apples and honey are beautifully complemented by the flavors of bourbon and oak imparted by the barrel aging process. This cyzer was the winner of a Gold Medal at the 2011 Mazer Cup! Give it a try, we think you will love it.
For this special batch varietal mead, we sourced honey from the Bidoo Collective in Oaxaca southern Mexico. The lush terrior gives hints of almond, lime, spice, orchid and wild fennel. Oaxacan mead is delightful for sipping or food pairing.
Try side-by-side with our Liquid Sunshine for a true terroir comparison (same recipe but raw honey from 3000 miles and a different bioregion away).

Our Spiced Ambrosia is a delicious and warming spiced mead that we make for the colder New England months (but tasty year round!). It is slightly sweeter than our Liquid Sunshine, and is made by steeping a blend of cinnamon, allspice, orange peel, white pepper, and coriander during the conditioning process. This mead is best served room temperature or slightly warmed like a mulled wine. It also complements many holiday desserts or a cheese plate.
