Mead is fermented honey, water and yeast. Various other ingredients can be added to make other types of mead such as Melomels, pyments and cysers. See that page for full descriptions.
We add no sulfides, or stabilizers. We try to keep ours as pure and clean as possible.
Yes, we source our ingredients as locally and GMO free as possible. There is no gluten in our meads.
Generally speaking, mead is best served at room temperature. Apollo's Blessing and Honeycomb Holiday taste wonderful warmed and also over ice!
Ours are sweet meads and pair very nicely with fruits, nuts, cheeses and even chocolate! Sip a glass after dinner as an aperitif.
Unopened Golden Stag will store indefinitely. The Melomels should probably be be used within a year. We have opened bottles several years aged with no loss of flavor. In fact they continue to age in the bottle and just keep getting better!
Opened bottles can be stored at room temperature to drink at your leisure but keep them closed to prevent oxidation, They will keep that way for weeks up to months. (We aren't sure, none have lasted beyond a week before being consumed!)
