The Melomel Story
Melomel was the mainstay of ancient agricultural communities, their festivals, and traditions long before the cultivation of grapes and barley. Honey was extracted by squeezing honeycomb by hand. This left a big mess of wax and honey. The wax and honey was put into a vat with any seasonal fruit left over from the Harvest and water and was allowed to ferment naturally. This might have helped to keep people more comfortable throughout winter. It was also discovered that by adding fruit to the mead, the fermentation would be stronger often leading to a higher alcohol.

In keeping with this history our Harvest Melomel is made with our own local honey and the berries that grow on the farm. It is clean fermented in stainless steel and is meant to be consumed within two years of release.
