Meads

Session Meads

We have a growing variety of session meads available on draft at our taproom. The term "session" refers to the alcohol content of the mead. Specifically that it's about half the normal alcohol content of a typical mead. Our session meads are 6.5% ABV or lower. We plan to offer some of the session meads in cans in the tasting room and for online orders soon.

Barrel-Aged Meads

All of our barrel-aged meads are unique and available in limited quantities. Due to the nature of barrel-aging, even batches that use the same recipe will turn out somewhat differently. Our barrel program is just starting out, but will continue to expand over time.

Apfelhonigwein "Apple Honey Wine"

A traditional Cyser aged in a Woodford Reserve Bourbon barrel. Northern Spy apples pair up with wildflower honey and start to sing with the integration of the bourbon; notes of spice, leather, a touch of cocoa, a little smoke, toasty oak and vanilla cream with a hint of butterscotch.

Bienenstich "Bee Sting"

Inspired by the German dessert that shares its name. Dark wildflower honey, maple syrup, and brown sugar are fermented together before being aged in a Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey barrel and flavored with vanilla and almonds.

Höhepunkt "Culmination"

The culmination of a lot of mead mad science that has helped shape Waldmet Cellars up to this point. A mead made with organic wildflower honey, tart cherry, and lots of herbs & spices (16 different ones), then aged in a Templeton Rye Whiskey barrel. Think about it like the smoothest Manhattan you've ever sipped.

Anbruch "Beginning" (Fall 2020)

A semi-sweet mead made with wildflower honey, coffee, blackberries, and raspberries. The coffee was specially roasted for us using 100% solar power by Off Grid Forever. Aged in a Templeton Rye Whiskey barrel.

Pfeffernüsse (Winter 2021)

A full-strength, barrel-aged version of our Gewürzkuchen "Spice Cake" session mead. A full-bodied mead made with avocado honey, figs, spices & herbs* aged first in a French oak Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot barrel, then a Woodford Reserve Bourbon barrel.

*Ginger, Lemon Peel, Rosehips, Plantain Leaf, Yarrow Leaf & Flower

Verwandlung "Metamorphosis" (Spring 2021)

A semi-sweet lactic acid sour hydromel mead made with wildflower honey and a unique blend of herbs. Aged in a Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot barrel.

Erwägen "To Reflect Upon" (Spring 2021)

A more sorghum-forward version of our Schwarzwald "Black Forest" mead made with Wildflower Honey, Sorghum Syrup, Tart Cherry, and a variety of herbs* then barrel aged for at least 6 months. This dark and mysterious mead is intended to be enjoyed slowly; savoring its complexity as you reflect upon your day.

*Licorice Root, Lemon Balm, and Elderflower
