Monks Mead: Made from 100% Wildflower Honey

Our original flavor and first love.  Monks Mead is a dry mead with a hint of honey flavor, gently carbonated and crisp.  It’s dangerously easy to imbibe despite being 11.9% abv.  Monks Mead is made from wildflower honey and water and naturally fermented with a champagne yeast.  This is the flavor that started it all.  Enjoy!

A Story of Mead...

A bottle filled with the history of the world. Known as the nectar of the Gods, mead has been part of mankind's story from the very beginning. Imbibed by the Egyptian Gods, toasted by Romans, and indulged by Vikings after battle, mead's history is rich with lore. Monks Mead is our modern version of mead, and we hope you make it part of your story.

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, and sometimes interesting smoothies. We use ingredients that we can find at our local farmers market or in our pantry.  We’ve played around with some savory ingredients and have made some unique meads with celery, cucumber, and even wormwood (this adds a good bit of bitterness to the mead).  Taking a play from our beer brewer friends, we’ve played around with lactobacillus (bacteria found in yogurt) which has given our mead a sour tartness and another layer of depth to our mead's final flavor...
