This week MEAD. One of the most ancient of all the alcoholic beverages. This is a rare opportunity to sample a collection of world-class meads with the owner of the Meadery! Join us as we welcome Ben Fairbrother from Moonlight Meadery. Moonlight is one of the most awarded meaderies in the world! Check it out:
We are a world class meadery from Londonderry, New Hampshire. We specialize in meads, the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage made from honey, and ciders. The diversity of our offerings often leave people speechless, while the flavors have them coming back time and time again.
It all started back in 1995 when Michael, our founder and head mead maker, tried a cyser (apple and honey mead) for the first time. Since that first sip Michael has developed a passion, and a masterful skill at making international award winning meads. After being recognized as New England’s best mead maker for three consecutive years, Michael quit his full time day job in 2010 and progressed from moonlighting as a mead maker to full time production – he has not looked back.
Mead and Ciders are only as good as the quality of their ingredients, and the passion of the maker. This is why we use only true source certified honey, which is traceable back to the hives. We never pasteurize the honey we use, this ensures that the volatile aromatics of the honey are preserved.
We work hard to source ingredients as locally as possible. Our cider is fresh pressed virtually out our back door. Our blueberries grow wild on the tops of mountains here in New England. Our commitment is to use the best quality ingredients. We don’t add sulfites, sorbates, or manufactured flavorings to our meads or ciders.
Our meads have earned medals every year at the Mazer Cup International. The Mazer Cup is the GABF equivalent in the mead world. Our ciders have been deemed excellent to outstanding by the highest BJCP (Beer Judged Certification Program) ranked judges in the country, as published in Zymurgy.
