Traditional meads (also called ‘show’ meads) use only honey, water and yeast as ingredients. That’s it. Simplicity is its advantage, as we can fully enjoy the character and aromatics of the honey that was used during production. In particular, monofloral honey types can differ quite significantly, producing wonderfully unique meads. Similar to the concept of ‘terrior’ in wine, monofloral honeys are a showcase to the particular region, flower, and even season, in which the bees harvested the nectar.
This category is fantastic for both the novice and the experienced mead drinker. A clean, straightforward approach to the flavors helps the newcomer learn what mead is, and the subtle nuances of the different honeys and yeast present a wide field for the advanced mead enthusiast to explore in their hunt for their favorite mead.
