Sweet Virginia (2016 Silver Medal Traditional Mead Drink Outside the Grape): A semi-sweet traditional mead made from honey from our hives diluted with mountain well water. Unboiled and sulfite/sorbate added. Gluten-free. $18
We limit our use of sulfites to those meads that require large amounts of raw fruits or finish with residual sugar, and we heat only when tradition or sanitation dictates, using a wood-fired kettle. Sweet Virginia is unfiltered so you may discover some sediment or cloudiness in the bottle. This is normal. Some like the flavor of the sediment and others do not. To avoid the sediment, let your mead settle and carefully pour it off of the sediment.
