Presence of the Wampanoag Tribe on Martha’s Vineyard, and their cultivation of sasumuneash (wild cranberries) thereupon, dates back hundreds of years. They still grow on the island and celebrate the harvest on Cranberry Day, the second Tuesday in October.
Our Martha is a Colorado wildflower mead with a solid floral background, cranberries, and finished with rosemary from Bill & Donna’s gardens. Aged a year in Wyoming Whiskey bourbon and Bear Creek Distilling rye barrels, it’s light and dry with a quenching finish.
Pair with pates, turkey, duck, venison, elk, lamb, gravlax, squashes, goat cheese, pear, orange or lemon desserts, walnuts, apples, and figs, 2nd Tuesday in October or 4th Thursday in November.
