Inspired by the classic bourbon cocktail, our Old Fashioned Mead starts with exceptional honey and a long, slow fermentation.

To this we add cherry, orange, and raw sugar, then it all goes into a rye barrel from our friends at Village Garage Distillery, where it mellows into a one-of-a-kind drink: A beverage that’s not quite a mead, not quite a cocktail, but somehow the best of both.

Tasting Notes:

  • Color - Y’know when you order two Manhattans and you ask for two extra cherries in one of them so you can tell them apart? Yeah. The one with two extra cherries. (Umber with Spring-run-salmon tones, if you want to order paint to match this mead.)
  • Aroma - Rye and wildflowers on the start with bright citrus on the end.
  • Flavor - The honey comes through right up front, with tart citrus and cherries, finishing with oak.
  • Closest Comparison - An Old Fashioned made with honey instead of sugar
