Making Mead takes more than just blending honey and water... 

At Monks Meadery, we find inspiration from flavor combinations found in other beverages like teas, craft cocktails, some tiki drinks and even interesting smoothies. We use fruits, herbs, spices and teas to derive our flavors.  We want ingredients that we can find at our local farmers market or in our pantry.  There is an infinite number of combinations that can be created with this extremely versatile historic beverage.  Check back to see what our latest creations are!
