A proprietary blend of local, New Hampshire apples and honey makes the base of this amazing mead. We add a special addition of hibiscus and rose hips that bring out some fruity and floral characteristics!
Crimson Sumac is a wild herb that has been steeped in history. In the Revolutionary and Civil War times, soldiers would boil the Sumac cones in water leaving them with a citrusy, pink lemonade-esque tea.
We have infused it into a mead made with local wildflower honey. Think citrus, lemonade-like flavors are light, delicate and finish refreshing.
A warm, savory spiced mead perfect for the winter season but equally enjoyable any time of year!
Typically, anything spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, cinnamon steals the show. Not here. We made this mead with the Nutmeg front and center with supporting roles by Ceylon cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice, Cloves, Fair Trade/ Organic Tahitian vanilla beans and the coveted New England wildflower honey.
As always, we use whole ingredients. Never any juices, extracts or concentrates.
This Batch of Higher Grounds Is Made From The Finest Fair Trade Baragwi Guama AB - Kenyan Coffee Beans. The Beans Were Roasted At Flight Coffee Roasters In Bedford, NH With Artful Delicateness And Intense Love. Flavor Bombs Of Peach And Honey. This Mead Is Easy To Love!
Ever had a Honeyberry before? We bet you have not. This berry is the cousin of the Honeysuckle. It looks like an elongated blueberry but has an amazing flavor of blueberries, raspberries and cranberries!
Slightly tart, this mead finishes medium bodied and very similar to an off-dry red wine. Light, local wildflower honey in the aroma and the mid palette.
A million flowers from all corners of Northern New England brought together by a million bees and given to you.
Our mead tend toward the drier side overall and the Traditional more than most. It is light bodied and flavored. Just a hint of the floral, almost minty quality from the alfalfa the nectar was harvested from. Enough sweetness to remind you that this is, in fact, honey made into wine.
This mead could be compared to an un-oaked Chardonnay due to its softness and mild quality.
We recommend it chilled in a standard white wine glass.
Our flagship mead. Pure NH Maple Syrup, Wildflower honey.
Maple mead (anciently known as Acerglyn), is an off-dry mead with notes of apples, flowers and caramel. Medium bodied and perfectly balanced with acidity and sweetness. Sugar Maple Mead pairs very well with pork, white fish and lamb, roasted or grilled fowl, especially when seasoned with warm herbs like Rosemary or Sage. It also pairs nicely with prosciutto and melon, perhaps a little chevre, too.
Serving Suggestions: On rocks. Chilled. Room temp.
We enjoy a glass of this right out of the bottle, no frills necessary. If you do want to make a cocktail, why not try our most popular cocktail we serve?
The Perfect Storm - 16 ounce glass and fill with ice. 4 oz of Sugar Maple and fill with ginger beer. I'd also suggest floating some dark rum on top just to give it that little something extra.
A mead of subtlety and wonderous complexities. This mead is made with Willamette hops, whole plump blueberries, maple syrup
and honey. The hops in this mead bring forward a fresh citrus note that helps balance the sweetness of the maple syrup and honey.
The whole blueberries contribute a wonderful purple color and also tannins from their skins; making this mead more wine-like than most of our meads.
Though all our meads are lovely at room temperature, please try this one with a little chill. Perhaps, even on ice.
Little hint: Throw a splash of this in a good gin and tonic.
Named after one of our most favorite Pink Floyd songs. This song has a skipping-like bass line that is unmistakable. This sweet traditional mead carries a similar bass note of wonderful honey, floral notes and of course - bourbon. Smooth and simple.
All of these bottles are hand numbered and in short supply!
Just enough sweetness to really give the vanilla some meat to grab on to but not enough to be cloying.
The fair trade and organic Indian vanilla beans used in this mead have a more subtle, floral sweetness to them. As opposed to a more spicy Madagascar bean, these impart an almost cream soda quality to the finish.
Breakout your best snifter or scotch glass, pour a finger or two and let it breath, warm and open up. Take note of the changes in its texture and flavor during the session. You will discover notes you never knew could be coaxed out of two simple ingredients.
