The summer issue of the quarterly American Mead Maker – the Journal of the American Mead Makers Association. Lots of great stories and insight from mead industry veterans.
The first guest recipe for the site comes from Bill Savage. Bill, who used to work for Wild Blossom Meadery shares his recipe for a Lavender-Blackberry Mead. Enjoy the great berry and lavender aroma!
The Lumberjack Cyser comes from Maryland’s Orchid Cellar Winery. It’s a warm dessert mead living up to the shape of the bottle. I definitely recommend enjoying on a cool fall or winter night next to a crackling fire – with wood you chop yourself, of course.
B. Nektar has taken the traditional Arnold Palmer (half lemonade, half iced tea) and “meadified” it. They seem to be having a lot of fun with their recipes, labels and descriptions. This playfulness produces exciting, creative and ultimately delicious results.
