Strawberry Sunrise Batch 2. This semi-sweet mead is an ultimate expression of strawberries, honey and vanilla. Presented in a 750 ml flint glass flip top bottle, with no limits, this second ever bottled batch of Strawberry Sunrise is freshly labeled and waiting for you.
Earlier bottled batches of the following three meads were designed as 3 of this years 5 meads in the Locavore Set, and we are psyched to have much larger subsequent batches to offer on August 5th. Descriptions follow and each of these meads are packaged in 375 ml Flute Altus antique green bottles with branded hand punched Portuguese corks.
Out of Time Batch 3 is a 15% ABV semi-sweet cyser (apple mead) made with Arizona wildflower honey, and a blend of apple varieties grown and juiced by our friend Dwight English of the English Family Fruit Farm near Wilcox, Arizona. Out of Time is also aged on medium toast American oak staves for 5 months. There is a one case limit on B3 OOT.
Flora Batch 2 is a 13.5% ABV semi-sweet traditional mead made with Arizona wildflower honey. The label was designed by local graphic artist Matthias Petsche to evoke a traditional naturalist illustration of wildflowers native to Arizona. There is no limit on Flora Batch 2.
Fauna Batch 2 is an off-dry 13.5% ABV traditional mead made with Arizona mesquite honey. This mead is perfect for when you crave a clean and simple mead that drinks drier than most, yet still imparts a beautiful sense of desert terroir. There is no limit on Fauna Batch 2.
