The Meads

“What is sweeter than honey, and what is stronger than a lion?”

Sunshine Daydream
Our flagship mead, Sunshine Daydream, is a refreshing alternative to beer or wine. Inspired by warm days in Coastal Virginia, this honey wine is a summer love in the spring, fall and winter. It has been aged in oak barrels, has a bright and balanced flavor with a mellow honey character that is best enjoyed slightly chilled. Pair it with whatever makes you happy – we like it with nuts, grilled cheese, smoked meats, or something spicy. (12% ABV)

Viva La Vanilla
A semi-sweet mead that is aged in Iron Clad Distillery bourbon barrels. To add yet another depth of flavor, we toss whole Madagascar vanilla beans to the cask. (12% ABV)

Ornery is a dry to slightly sweet, carbonated mead made with honey from Culpeper, Virginia. The carbonation lets the honey notes dance on your tongue. Savor the subtle tastes of clover and lemon in this easy to drink mead! (6% ABV)

Blackberry Mead
Always a crowd pleaser. Plump blackberries and Clover Honey make this mead our bestseller. A semi-sweet, mead has a refreshing acidity as if it was picked off the vine. This mead pairs well with cheese of all sorts, fruit cobblers, crisp salads, and (our favorite) PB&J. (12% ABV)

Small Batch, Limited Editions

Good Lovin
A Semi-sweet with just enough tartness to make you pucker up. This blended mead is an adventure in taste that will surprise your taste buds. The honey blends perfectly with black currant, cherry, blueberry, and red raspberry. (11.4% ABV) 

Summertime Buzz

Roaring Red
Summer Release! You will not be able to put this semi-sweet blackberry and cherry mead down. Roaring Red is inspired by our best seller, Blackberry. We kicked the flavor up a notch with this one by adding our special blend of cherries. (12% ABV)
