Mead Demon

I feel the need ... the need for MEAD! Now do that cool walking-past-each-other high five and we'll call it a day.

C'mon, when you're drinking with your buddy and you want to yell out things like SEE YOU IN VALHALLA and ON THE MORROW WE DINE IN STO'VO'KOR you do NOT want to be drinking PBR. And that, dear friends, is why the world invented mead.

Mead is so good it even took over the name of the time frame when it was popular. What, you never heard of Mead-evil times? Yeah, see, we're forcing you to rethink all SORTS of things now! But don't, because thinking isn't what mead it all about.

Mead says "I live in the now!" Mead says "I'm not scared!" Mead says "I sure know how to commit and I also enjoy honey and sometimes I might break the bookcase but I always apologize for it the next day and make sure I cover the damages in cash." Because mead isn't the drink of tyrants and fools. Mead is the drink of people who just like to have a good time.

Which is why we're offering two three packs. What, you don't think you can drink mead ALONE, do you? That's crazy! Go get some pals and raise your glasses to your friendship. And if you accidentally slay a dragon before the night's over ... hey, that's just part of the traditional mead experience, right?

Features

Chaucer's Mead 750ml 3-Pack

Take a step back in time and enjoy the flavors of this popular Medieval Elixir. This Mead is made with similar recipes used in Medieval Times. Chaucer’s Mead uses 100% pure honey composed of a blend of three types; orange, alfalfa and sage. Each of these components brings a unique quality to the blend and contributes to the overall complexity of the wine. Orange adds a pungent orange blossom flavor and has light color. Alfalfa is neutral in flavor but yields a dark, amber color. Sage, on the other hand, has a mild taste and a light color.
 
Enjoy chilled or with our hot spices.  Served cold, it’s a dessert all on its own. Using the spice bag, serve warm as a hot spiced mead to enjoy the cinnamon, orange peel and clove flavors. Although this wine exhibits richness similar to a fine liqueur, it is not fortified and contains only 11% alcohol. To enjoy the full qualities of this wine, it should be consumed shortly after purchase.
 
Pairing Suggestions:
- Serve warm with spices or cold for a summer sipper
- Enjoy with dried fruits and nuts
- Serve alongside a pear tart or desserts prepared with nuts
- Enjoy with some cheeses having a strong taste (blue or aged cheeses)

Chaucer's Raspberry Mead 500ml 3-Pack

The flavor of this wine explodes with raspberry and honeysuckle. The wine is a blend of Chaucer's Mead and a small portion of their Raspberry Wine. Less sweet than their regular Mead, this wine finishes with a lingering crisp raspberry and honeysuckle impression. A blend of honey wine and fruit such as raspberry is known as Melomel. This blend of fruit and honey has been enjoyed for centuries.
