Our Off Dry Pear is a lightly fruity reminder of Springtime. It’s aroma whispers of pear blossoms and honey, while the creamy mouth feel holds the balance of the earthy notes of honey with the light floral of pear, ending in a long ripe pear finish. Crisp and lush! Pair with cheeses, such as brie or cheddar, Asian-inspired foods, or a light salad with a light vinaigrette.
Our limited release Blueberry Mead has a crisp, lightly fruity flavor. With a floral aroma in the background behind the blueberry scents. It’s like walking through a blueberry patch.

This semi-sweet traditional mead is made with Sourwood honey from the NC mountains. The varietal honey has flavors of butterscotch, raisin, and straw before fermentation.

Enjoy chilled with a sweet and sour stir-fry, spaghetti with marina sauce, or shrimp cocktail.
