Honey wine made in Boulder
Mead is probably the world’s first fermented beverage, wine fermented from honey. Instead of fermenting the sugars from grapes (wine) or grains (beer), honey is the key sugar. Contrary to believe, not all mead is sweet. It can very well be dry, depending on the brewing and fermenting process. Just like grapes, different honeys make different meads.
Chairman of the Mead David Myers had a long history of homebrewing before opening Redstone Meadery in 2001. Redstone Meadery’s first flagship mead was Black Raspberry Nectar. Since then they’ve released many tasty meads and even brought the first draft mead to market.
Their mead is made with only high-quality honey, along with real fruits and spices. Adamant about making an all-natural product, Redstone doesn’t use any sulfites, a known allergen. Honey is it’s own preservative and they take full advantage of this. They only pasteurize the unfermented mead, aka must, and never boil it. They want the honey flavor to shine through as much as possible.
Their award-winning is amongst the most highly sold in the nation. You can find it at liquor stores across the U.S.
