The spirit behind the world's
first beverage is alive

But don't take our word for
it......join the revolution! Head to your local bar and...
If it was good enough for Bacchus, Zeus, Beowulf and
Shakespeare, it’s good enough for you. -- Boulder Weekly
Boulder's Redstone Meadery, one of the
country's largest mead producers, offers such enticing mixers as the
Meadmosa, Nectar Be Darned and Mead Tai, but our favorite was their
Honey Wine with Black Raspberry Puree (Redstone Reserve 2001). It's
rich and sweet with dominant honey flavors, complemented by black
raspberry, currants and cranberries. Try this melomel (fruit infused
mead) in sangria or homemade chocolate truffles, as a sweet fillip for
roast beef or duck gravies, or for a modern twist on tiramisu. -- Wine
Some in imbibing circles claim mead was the first
fermented beverage. The ancient drink is still around and, what's more,
it's the of-the-moment thing to drink now in the Rocky Mountain state.
Colorado's own Redstone Meadery in Boulder produces a fine one. --Splendid

What does mead taste like? A visit to the tasting rooms
at Redstone Meadery will answer that question...and then some. Mead is
a light garnet color and tastes like sparkling black raspberries -
something like summertime in a glass. Or is it amber, tasting like
juniper berries, with a slight gin-like flavor and the suggestion of
oak? Maybe it tastes like vanilla, with a hint of cinnamon that curls
around the back of your throat? Or perhaps like cool clear golden honey
wine, a taste that reconnects with genetic memory, the first fermented
beverage known to man (and woman). Could it be mead in that
crescent-moon shaped bottle? --Colorado Daily
Well, what are you waiting for? Time to
drink some mead!
