Other Fermentables / Favorite Commercial Meads
« on: August 12, 2010, 12:19:29 PM »
Hi,  From another Mead post there was a statement "better than any commercial Mead I had".  This got me thinking - what is everyone's favorite commercial Mead?  By asking this I would rather people not trash those Meaderys that they don't care for but there are some great Commercial Meaderys out there and I am curious if I have missed some of them.  I continually find new Meaderys starting up that I didn't know about.

Some of my favorites are:

Redstone (Colorado) - in particular the Vanilla Cinnamon
White Winter (Wisconsin) - Almost all of them - but have to say I am really partial to the Port Mead
B Nektor (Michigan) - have only had a few but they had a great Ginger mead
Mountain Meadows (California) - phenomenal Traditional - Honeymoon Nector

There are a many other Meaderys so I am curious to see what others like.

Cheers,
Susan
