Anyone try their meads? I haven't opened it yet, but bought some mead during a recent trip to the Denver area. One bottle is from the Oliver Winery of Indiana. I want to give them a grade of A++++ for their bottle, label, cork and appearance in general! Their bottle has an embossed bee on a flower on the neck. The cork has bees on flowers imprinted on it. The back label has a side facing the front with bees on flowers. Very clever and colorful labeling - I am impressed. Hopefully it will taste as good as it looks.
The mead is very light in color & crystal-clear. Now, I'm waiting for a special occasion to open it because the bottle and all is so unique, it's too pretty to just pull the cork. Thank goodness Mother's Day is coming soon!
The liquor store I stopped in had only two mead varieties on hand and I got them both. The other is Lancelot Honey Wine from Meaderie of the Rockies. Good looking and not as cool, label-wise, but can't wait to pull that cork, either
Our honey is usually at best a light amber to medium or even dark amber in color and I just can't get my mead as light in color as these two varieties are. My meads usually look like tea or watered-down Coke.
