Mead is a wonderful drink made from honey, water, and sometimes fruit.
Mead is mentioned in the Rig Veda of India, a 6,000 year old writing, as the "Ambrosia" and "the nectar
of the gods".
Mead is associated with the word "honeymoon", as after a wedding, the newlywed couple would spend a month (moon)
drinking mead. (honey wine)
Our meads are made with honey, water, yeast and fruit, and nothing else. Our primary source of honey is from the wildflowers
of Northern New Mexico.
While all fermented beverages have a naturally occurring level of sulphites, we add no sulphites or chemicals of any kind
to our meads.
Falcon meads are made with honey as the main fermentable ingredient. In the fruit varietals, a small amount of fruit is added
which adds a note to the flavor.
The juice of bees, not Bacchus, here behold,
Which British Bards were wont to quaff of old;
The berries of the grape with Furies swell,
But in the honey comb the Graces dwell.
-- Howell, 1640
