Melchemy Craft Mead
In our search for connection, we discover home.

Melchemy is a small-batch, barrel-aged craft meadery located near the town of Carson, on the northern side of the Columbia River, central Cascade Mountains—otherwise known as Skamania County, Washington. We are grateful to call this wondrous region home. Our mead is crafted with a reverence for this place, of cultures past and present, and with a promise to the future. In addition to the highest quality, mostly wildcrafted ingredients, we strive to offer a true taste of place in each bottle.

We are excited about releasing two of our most personal casks this season. Our Traditional Mead, and our Salal variety. Our salal was wildcraft harvested from the forests right on the meadery grounds. Also, our second cask of Triple Bee Blackberry is now released, with a more mild buckwheat blossom honey, and a bit more oak-y tannin.

Craft is defined by makers  not companies, shareholders, board rooms or quarterly projections. Our meads result from an intimate connection to every part of the creative process, from the gathering and growing of ingredients, to the nurturing of the fermentation process, to bottling, corking, and labeling…
Craft is biomimicry, a closed loop. We practice permaculture on the land surrounding the meadery. This means that we integrate a systems approach to how things are grown and how they are connected to the nutrient and waste streams. This fosters a holistic, closed loop approach to agriculture and land stewardship.
