Our Cherry Blood mead is a classic European-style mead, intertwined with pagan lore and sacred ritual. Cherries and honey, the staple ingredients, were mixed with sour cherry and vanilla to create a new-world flavor suitable for the American palate. The result is a balanced and delicious mead, which pays homage to the Norse peoples who mastered the art of mead-making. With 14% ABV, our Cherry Blood mead is perfect for any occasion.
