WHITE GOOSEBERRY MEAD
WHITE is an English and Welsh semi-sweet melomel made with white honeys (clover & alfalfa), seasoned with gooseberries. Since white currants are scarce, we’re using a related berry from the same Ribes genus, producing a similar flavor while maintaining the light color. In keeping with olde centuries Welsh tradition, we named it for the color of mead it produces.
Pairs with fish, rabbit and other wylde game, pheasant, duck, and other poultry, lamb, pork, cheese, and good company.
Mead is honey wine, the most ancient of drynks, common to all cultures of the Olde World. Such culture stretched from India in the East to the British Isles in the West. Today, it is our inheritance from the Ancient Greeks and Romans, the stuff driving legends: Viking battles, Beowulf’s Quest, Briseis’ Romance, and Royal Courts; the very Nectar of the gods.
MeadMaster Pete Wylde’s craftsmanship is like the ancients, unfiltered, using real fruit. Bees make honey the same since the dawn of time. What you hold in your hands is your connection to our ancient forebears.
The tradition of giving a nuptial couple a lunar-month’s supply to ensure a “fruitful” union came to be known as the “Honeymoon”.
