Melchemy Meads are crafted dry: UPROOTED • Ginger Turmeric with Peppercorn — Cask(A)
Not of our bioregion, these flavors come to us by way of Hawaii. Our mazer couldn’t pass up farm-fresh ginger and turmeric from a visit to the Big Island. Paired with a touch of black pepper to create a smooth spice on top of subtle sweet notes of local western Oregon honey and a hint of oak from barrel aging. Best enjoyed chilled.

UPROOTED • Ginger Turmeric with Peppercorn •
Flavors (Cask A)
Wildflower Honey - Willamette Valley

Oregon's Willamette Valley is an agricultural cornucopia in one of the most fertile areas in the Cascadia bioregion. We use honey from this ecoregion derived from honeybees' pollination of mostly wildflowers and blackberry blossoms.

Ginger & Turmeric - Zingiber officinale & Curcuma longa

Our Mazer came across some beautiful fresh, organic ginger and turmeric at a farmer’s market while on a trip to Hawaii. He couldn’t pass up the chance to turn some into mead and hence you have this remarkable pairing. This combo is warming and immune system boosting, a combo often found alongside honey and lemon in cold alleviating tonics.

Black Peppercorn Piperaceae - Piper nigrum

Because Turmeric has to be made bio-available for the body to use it, we threw in some peppercorns to assist with that process, as well as to complement the overall flavor pallet with a bit more spice.

American Oak Barrel Aged - Raw / Untoasted

Some flavors call for aging in a raw, untoasted American oak barrel, for a purer taste of oak.
