Enjoy six rare meads from one of the highest-rated meaderies in America in this limited set and save 10% off the retail price! Standard shipping included.
This set includes one 375ml bottle of each of the following meads:
Sangria Blanca - Sangria-Style Fruited Mead (11.9% ABV) A pyment hybrid inspired by a white sangria made with Pinot Grigio grape must, peaches, strawberries, mangos, apples, oranges and genuine Florida key limes.
Holiday Isle Special - Tiki-Style Fruited Mead Aged on Rum Staves (13.7%) Holiday Isle Special is made in collaboration with Corporate Ladder Brewing Company in Florida. Garagiste took inspiration from Islamorada’s iconic Holiday Isle Tiki Bar Rum Runner cocktail using pineapple juice, orange juice, blackberry liqueur, banana liqueur a splash of grenadine and lots of rum. This mead is made with some amazing orange blossom honey, pineapples and bananas from Costa Rica, tangerines from Uruguay, blackberries and cherries from the US. Fermented with a Saccharomyces hybrid known for tropical esters then aged on rum staves.
Rocket Fuel - Fortified Wild Mead with Fruit Brandy (16.5% ABV) Rocket Fuel is Garagiste's first soirée into fortified meads which are pretty uncommon in the United States. A collaboration with Ology Brewing in Tallahassee, together they made a mead using a medley of boysenberries, red currants, tart cherries and apricots along with some banging honey, then fermented it with a mixed culture fermentation. Simultaneously, their friends at Ology Distilling made a brandy with the same fruits. The brandy was distilled to 140 proof then added to the mead. The resultant mead clocks in at a whopping 16.5% ABV. Bright fruit, some sweetness as you’d expect and some very interesting depth from the brandy. Dangerously drinkable.
Fulgaris - Oak-Aged Fruited Mead (11.7% ABV) Fulgaris is the newest member of the “No Name” mead series featuring Black Raspberries, Honeyberries and Tart Cherries aged on French Oak. A splendid addition to the family with fruit to the face.
SBVL - Fruited Mead with Lactose and Vanilla (14.5% ABV) A strawberry, banana, and vanilla mead with lactose, SBVL is a collaboration with friends at More Brewing in Chicago. Garagiste decided to reimagine their Strawberry Banana Marbles Milkshake IPA as a mead. Orange Blossom honey that’s just oozing citrusy character, some lactose for creaminess, and nearly a full ton of domestic strawberries, fresh Costa Rican bananas and dried banana chips. They kept it wild with a mixed culture of Saccharomyces and non-Saccharomyces strains and then finished it on Madagascar vanilla beans. It’s the smoothie you always really wanted.
Creamsicle - Fruited Mead with Lactose and Vanilla (13.1% ABV) Inspired by an Orange creamsicle and Mikerphone’s Crush, Crush, Crush beer concept, this mead features orange blossom honey, mandarin oranges, Madagascar vanilla beans and lactose for creaminess.
Hardywood Baltic Sunrise is conditioned on locally roasted coffee beans from Black Hand Coffee Company in Richmond, VA. Baltic Porter is an invigorating, full-bodied lager with a bold aroma of freshly brewed coffee preceding notes of bittersweet chocolate, hints of dark cherry, and a malty, smooth finish.
