Five and Dime Warrior-Semi-Sweet Virginia Mead
The go-to in an introduction to mead. We ferment Virginia Finest honey with water and yeast, then age it for 3 months to smooth it out. It’s really a lot more complicated than this, but the finished product is a smooth light bodied semi sweet traditional mead. From the first timer to the old pro meader, this is as simple as it comes.
Mead (honey wine) dates back to biblical times and was very popular in early England. In fact, the term “honeymoon” relates to the early English custom of newlyweds drinking mead for the first month of their marriage. This honey mead is best served at room temperature or slightly chilled.
