1634Meadery PuritanPride 23Feb2015 front  

Puritan Pride- ABV 14.5% 

Just like the puritans of old, nothing fancy here!  A dark wildflower is fermented dry and aged on American Oak. More similar to a wine then some of our other meads, with some earthy and vanilla tones.  It is dry - so don't be caught of guard!

DevilsFootprint Front 6Apr16   Devil's Footprint-ABV 13.1%

A devily delightful sipping mead. Blueberries, raspberry and blackberries locally sourced are fermented with raw local honey to make this dry, tart mead. And a great local historic story to go along with the name!


Minuteman- ABV 12.3%
Based on a 1674 recipe from London, this Metheglin style mead contains local honey, local raspberries, Grains of Paradise spice, cinnamon and cloves.  A delish tart and light pepper flavor goes down smooth.  Voted a employee favorite, three years running!

Toast to the Minutemen and their ladies!



Beekeeper-ABV 14.5%

A limited release special mead!   This mead is made with rare to find (in New England) rich, dark Buckwheat honey.   This robust, earthy honey is fermented to a high ABV and tart local cherries.  In honor of all the local beekeepers, and one of the first in the area, John Ells of Newbury who operated an apiary in Newbury in 1640s.



Front 15Dec20 websize   B100-ABV 13.5%

Blackberries from local Russell's Orchards are fermented off-dry and then aged with sweet basil, for a juicy, earthy character. This batch is the 100th one we have made at the meadery, since we opened in 2015!  What a joy ride!

GOLD MEDAL WINNER!  2022 National Honey Board Commercial Mead

BlueberryFront17Mar15   Blueberry Dream-ABV 14.3%

Blueberries, from Cider Hill Farms in Amesbury, have been fermented with raw Massachusetts honey.  This year we also added some low bush blueberries from Maine to increase the blueberry color and flavor.  This is one of our favorite products-  always jumping with flavor, this provides thoughts of a late summer rest in a hammock.  We strive to capture the true blueberry flavor, with careful crafting. This a dryer mead with a hint of sweetness.

Beewitched front 27Sep16

  Beewitched-ABV 12.5%

A Semi-sweet mead made with fresh, raw Maine clover honey. If dry or sweet is not your thing, give this a try! Plus, there is a great story to go with it- just read the label about Mazer's Dan x generation grandmother, hung as an accused witch in Salem.

InTheOrchardfront19Sep16   In The Orchard-ABV 12.5%

A semi-sweet apple mead (sweeter than our other cyser) made with local cider, local honey, and aged with Indonesian cinnamon. This a must after a day apple picking in New England and better as a chilled summer sipper! Yum!


Strawberry Fields-ABV 13.7%

Mounds of beautiful, locally grown, red fragrant berries make this mead one of our stand outs. On the tongue, the berry flavor explodes, and then a hint of cinnamon lingers on your palate. This mead is a semi-sweet wine.


VVFrontLabel   Viking Victory-ABV 15.5%

A spiced mead (metheglin) made with bamboo honey. Perfect for sipping while sitting in front of the fireplace! Mulled with Nutmeg, Allspice, Cinnamon and Cloves. Metheglins have been around for literally a millennium!

OrangeElation2018front   Orange Elation-ABV 13.7%
We went out of the area for the orange blossom honey in this straight up mead, but we think you'll agree, this mead is a staple of any wine cellar! If you have never tried mead,and like sweet start here!
  Jason's Blunder-ABV 14.3%

A mistake gone good.  An accidental combining of our cranberry and strawberry meads, with the raspberry added as a balancer, the mead drinker is introduced to sweet red berry delight!  A terrible mistake that has gone good.  We made Jason write the label, so you will have to read it to get his full story!

 DeadeyeFront Jul23  

A special treat!  Made with juicy ripe Black Raspberries and wildflower honey, this mead is fortified with Black Raspberry Brandy we made ourselves.  This first batch was aged for over two years on some French Oak, making a deep rich flavor.

This is a sweet mead, which is balanced perfectly with higher alcohol and dark fruit flavors.
