Bochet – Barrel Aged Mead Made With lightly Caramelized Bush Honey and Manuka Honey.
Introducing our Mythic Collection. With the help of our Pagan consultant Aaron Pyne of Inner Realms Journey, we bring to you meads inspired by historical legends. Our Mythic Collection Meads are spontaneously fermented with wild yeast, leaving the gods to determine the path of the Mead.
Surtr, this Bochet, is inspired by the Norse myth of Surtr, the Fire Giant (or primordial jötunn) from the fiery realm of Muspelheim. It is prophesied that at Ragnarok, the end of the great cycle, Surtr will cross the Bifröst to do battle with the Gods with his fiery sword. Some say Surtr signifies the passion and fire that can arise within us. Surtr’s fire and heat beautifully, but lightly caramelize the honey prior to fermentation giving the Mead subtle hints of toffee, caramel, and butterscotch.
