Bourbon Barrel Mead

Winemaker's Notes:

This mead is made with 96% Orange Blossom and 4% Buckwheat honey. It is fermented, then aged in a newly emptied bourbon barrel. The barrel was used originally used to age an 18 year old special bourbon. The mead aged for just under a year in the barrel. The mead is a deep copperish orange. It has very noticeable bourbon flavors and aromas which help lend even more complexity to this already spectacular mead. This is great sipping mead, as the alcohol comes in at around 16.5%

WOW! I'm so in love with this mead, I wish the honey wasn't so rare and expensive.

This mead is made with clover honey, cinnamon sticks, and vanilla beans, then aged on American oak. It's a hit everywhere we bring it.

This blend of fruit and honey is an excellent introduction to meads. We like to call it a gateway mead because once you try it, you're hooked.

A big and tasty mead. The oak really rounds out the flavor and adds hints of vanilla.
