Three separate, raw, unfiltered, wildflower honeys are blended to make this special mead (honey wine): from Ken’s hives here in Sanbornton, from hives in the southern portion of New Hampshire and northeastern Mass. Each honey has a distinct character and contribution to the aromatic, light but intense, long lasting and complex flavors of this “show mead.” The cool fermentation temperatures, raw and reductive processing, and strong-happy-healthy yeast fermentation helped to capture all of the nuances of each of the three honeys into each bottle. Our first batch of this wine won a silver medal at the National, American Wine Society’s Commercial Wine Competition and our 2011 won Gold at the Mazer Cup. This is a versatile wine which can be served chilled to room temp., enjoyed on its own or with a wide variety of foods, but best with those that do not overpower its alluring and delicate nose.
