Terms, Conditions, and Credits

Terms & Conditions

Redstone Meadery sells alcoholic beverages and requires that anyone purchasing mead be at least 21 years of age. Minors are discouraged from viewing this site.

You will be required to certify your age when checking out, and your shipment, if it contains mead, will be sent requiring the signature of a legal adult. Redstone may ask for confirmation of age before shipping if we are unable to independently verify your age. By agreeing to our Terms & Conditions at checkout, you attest that you are age 21+, as is the intended recipient if other than yourself, and you understand that you may be asked to provide proof of age.
