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?
