This mead is made with Elderberries. Elderberry wine has a long history as a classic American homebrew now brought front and center for your enjoyment. Elderberries have a rich, complex flavor reminiscent of black currants, with a tad more acid and tannin. There is a hint of sweetness in this rich dark purple mead. Elderberries are also good medicine. Proven to be anti-cold and anti-flu, this mead will keep you good company all fall and winter.
