OUR MEADS

  1. TRAPPE'S CASK
    This Dry, Still Mead showcases the wonderful characteristics of our own Honey that we harvest in Colorado. In addition, sensual notes of vanilla, spice and oak are present in the aroma and the taste. Trappers Cask has been aged in an American Oak Chardonnay barrel for at least five months and it was well worth the wait!
    2012 SILVER INTERNATIONAL MEDAL WINNER
  2. EARL GREG
    This Semi-Sweet, Still Mead is infused with Earl Grey Tea. (the name is not a typo, it IS Earl GREG) An enticing aroma of black tea, citrus (bergamot orange) & light floral notes draws you in for your first taste. The tannins of the tea add a complimentary balance to the indulgent sweetness of our own Colorado Honey. Tea and Honey are definitely made for each other!

  3. SEMI-SWEET MOUNTAIN BERRY
    The “original” of our Wild Huckleberry/Chokecherry is one of our biggest sellers. This is great as a Main Meal Mead or as a dessert Mead for those who don’t like real sweet.
    2014 SILVER INTERNATIONAL MEDAL, 2014 BRONZE COLORADO MEDAL
  4. SWEET MOUNTAIN BERRY
    This Sweet, Still Mead is made with wild Rocky Mountain huckleberries and Colorado chokecherries. Huckleberries are more tart than their cousin, the blueberry. The tartness of the berries blends nicely with our own Colorado Honey, which results in a smooth, luscious fusion of flavors!
    2012 SILVER INTERNATIONAL MEDAL WINNER
  5. HOWLING MOON
    This Semi-Sweet, Still Mead combines the intricate flavors of our own Colorado Honey with the bold, earthiness of Jamaican Coffee. Honey and coffee go as well together as “Tea and honey” in this fermented beverage. Our daughter nicknamed this Mead “Tiramisu in a Bottle”! Howling Moon is for those of us who love their coffee anytime of the day or night.
    2013 BRONZE INTERNATIONAL MEDAL, 2015 SILVER & BRONZE INTERNATIONAL MEDALS
  6. KIM'S CLOVE
    This mead has been nicknamed our “Holiday Mead” because it smells like the Winter Holidays and makes a wonderful Hot Toddy with hot Apple Cider, Cinnamon sticks and a bit of fresh orange juice!
    2014 COLORADO MEDAL, 2015 SILVER INTERNATIONAL MEDAL
  7. TOUCH OF GOLD
    This Semi-Sweet, Still Mead is infused with saffron spice. The most expensive spice in the world! This Mead took almost 2 years for the spice and the honey to meld together nicely!

  8. LUNAR LEMON
    This Semi-Sweet, Still Mead is a luscious blend of organic lemons & our own Colorado Honey! This is an easy sipper on a hot day and has been nicknamed “Summer in a Bottle”. Some of our customers even drink it over crushed ice, like a hard lemonade only much more flavorful! Lunar Lemon is definitely a Fan Favorite.
    2015 BRONZE INTERNATIONAL MEDAL
  9. KONA MIKALA
    This Sweet Kona Coffee infused Mead is a great “after dinner sipper”. The earthiness of the Hawaiian soil, where the Kona coffee trees grow is apparent in this Mead which is balanced by the alfalfa, floral, sweetness of our Colorado honey.
    2014 BRONZE INTERNATIONAL MEDAL, 2015 GOLD INTERNATIONAL MEDAL
  10. MOON DANCE CHERRY
    This Semi-Sweet Mead is made with Dark Bing Cherries from the Rocky Mountain region of Northwest Montana. The dark Bing cherries add a juicy richness to this Mead without a “fruit bomb” sort of taste. Subtle, but flavorful is how it has been described.
  11. PROSPECTOR PEACH
    This Semi-Sweet peach Mead made with the famous Palisade, Colorado peaches has the taste and mouthfeel a little bit more like an off-dry than a Semi-Sweet Mead. If you like Off-Dry to Semi-Sweet white grape wines you will like this Mead.
  12. BLUEBERRY HAZE
    This Semi-Sweet Blueberry Mead has the aroma of a blueberry wine with a hint of our Colorado Wildflower Honey in the background. We purposely created this Mead with just a hint of blueberries for those that do not care for “fruit bombs”.
  13. TRAPPERS CASK RED
    This is a Dry Mead aged in a Merlot French Oak barrel for about 6 months.
  14. GINGER MOON
    Sweet Mead made with raw ginger root.
  15. LADY EVA
    Semi-Sweet Mead made with Palisade, Colorado Peaches & whole vanilla beans. So smooth and yummy!

PERFECT PAIRINGS
A Match Mead in Heaven
TRAPPERS CASK: Goes well with Halibut or salmon in a light sauce, poultry, pork, oysters. It is a nice accompaniment to a Caesar salad or mild curry dishes. Butternut squash or pumpkin ravioli makes for a lovely pairing. For dessert serve it with pumpkin, apple or pecan pie. Anything that a lightly oaked Chardonnay would go with would also work with Trappers Cask.

EARL GREG: Scones & cream of course for afternoon tea! Pairs well with light, sweet and subtle flavors, such as lemon poppy seed cake, strawberry short cake/pound cake, or a “stone fruit” tart (apricot, peach or plum). Brunch foods like Eggs Benedict or poached/baked fish with lemon slices. Pairs well with citrus based foods and creates a nice balance when served with slightly spicy dishes.    

SEMI-SWEET MOUNTAIN BERRY: Our “original version” of this huckleberry/chokecherry Mead is also good with desserts and fruit, but like a deep red wine it can also stand up well with beef or venison at the dinner table. Using some as a marinade or basting sauce makes for a tasty gravy!  This Mead can also be cooked down and used as a dipping sauce for Fruit Kabobs at a summer picnic!      

SWEET MOUNTAIN BERRY: This Mead goes with any type of chocolate or chocolate dessert. It is also very tasty with plain cheesecake or on TOP of plain cheesecake. For a fun “fancy” brownie, try using this Mead in place of the water in a simple boxed brownie mix, it is divine! As an aperitif Sweet Mountain Berry Mead is a “Dessert in a glass”, nothing else needed.       

HOWLING MOON: Of course anything you prefer to drink with your regular cup of coffee should go well with this Mead. Blueberry coffee cake, or anything that has blueberries as one of the main ingredients pairs especially well. Rum cake, coconut tarts and banana bread are also good pairings. Anyone who uses a coffee rub on pork or beef may enjoy this with such a meal.  Anything with some citrus or chocolate would work well because of those back notes in the Jamaican coffee.  From experience we know that a cup of hot chocolate with some Howling Moon Mead in it is wonderful for a cold Colorado night! It also works well by itself as an aperitif in lieu of sweets.       

KIM'S CLOVE: Kim’s Clove Mead goes well with just about anything  traditionally served for Christmas or Thanksgiving. Pairs very well with ham or turkey but pairs equally well with pumpkin, pecan or apple pie, spice cake with cream cheese frosting or cheesecake!    
   
TOUCH OF GOLD: Saffron is an Eastern spice so it will pair well with any Thai or Asian foods as well as some Mediterranean/Greek/Indian dishes, such as seafood Paella or lamb kabobs.  The sweetness of the honey will help to tame the spiciness of such meals. Even though it is a Mexican dessert, sopapillas will balance nicely with our Touch of Gold, especially if you drizzle them with honey! The spiciness of a good pumpkin, apple pie or even baklava would pair well with this Mead!         

LUNAR LEMON: Any main dish that is made with lemon would go well with this Mead. Seafood dishes such as halibut or salmon on the bbq is amazing together! Shrimp with lemon & honey with Lunar Lemon is wonderful! This would be another PERFECT pairing with brunch foods. The citrus of the Mead will cut the cheesy, buttery richness in dishes like scalloped potatoes or omelets. This  Mead, mixed with Prosecco makes for a nice Mimosa-like drink.  Lunar Lemon is perfect with desserts that include lemon or other citrus. Cheesecake, angel food cake, light puddings, pineapple upside down cake, spice cake, blonde brownies and just about anything made with white chocolate!           

KONA MIKALA: This Mead works as a dessert in itself, paired with sweet treats or just a nice way to end a day! An obvious pairing would be coffee cake, maybe a spiced one or one with blueberries. Chocolate & nuts would be a great pairing for this Mead for a fun “adult” milkshake mix some of this mead into your next chocolate shake!     
MOON DANCE CHERRY: This Semi-Sweet cherry Mead will work well of course with any Cherry dessert but also with anything lemon. As for dinner, a roast duck would work well with this Mead. We would suggest glazing the duck with Moon Dance Cherry Mead as well! Venison would be delicious with the cherry flavor of this mead as well. For dessert, pair with Lemon cupcakes or a lemon pound cake with white icing.  A spice cake with cinnamon and nutmeg or Dark chocolate desserts will all go well with this cherry Mead. 

PROSPECTOR PEACH: This Peach Mead would go well with pork or poultry. Try basting the meat with some of the Mead! Pair this with any baked goods made with spices such as cinnamon, allspice or clove. A sweet peach cobbler would balance well with this “not so sweet” Mead.     

TRAPPERS CASK RED: A nice big beef or venison steak would match up well with this Mead. A meaty spaghetti dinner would also be a nice pairing. Apple pie for dessert pairing.  

GINGER MOON: Although it is sweet, this Mead would pair well with Spicy Asian dishes to help balance out the heat of these foods. This would go well with a lot of desserts, such as pound cake, cheesecake, or any white cake or spice cake type of dessert. This Mead is also great as an after dinner drink to settle  your stomach after a heavy meal! 

LADY EVA: I have an Apricot Glazed Cornish Hen recipe that this would pair well with. I can see it with my “checkered” scalloped potatoes as well. For this recipe, alternate garnet yams with Yukon gold potatoes and just follow your favorite scalloped potato recipe! Ham can be added too. A Coffee Cake with a crunchy brown sugar coating, a Pineapple Upside Down cake or a piece of Angel Food Cake with homemade whipped cream would be great with this Mead!
