Sweet Virginia (2017 Best Mead, Virginia State Fair & 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. $21
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.
