Melchemy Meads are crafted dry: UPROOTED • Ginger Turmeric with Peppercorn — Cask(C)

Local meets exotic in this pairing of honey and herb. Using Ginger and Turmeric sourced from small, sustainable tropic farms, we combine these classic root herbs with a touch of black pepper to create a warming spice on top of the subtle sweet notes from locally sourced honey and a hint of oak from barrel aging. Best enjoyed chilled.

UPROOTED • Ginger Turmeric with Peppercorn •
Flavors (Cask C)
Local Wildflower Honey -

We use honey from this ecoregion, derived from honeybees' pollination of mostly wildflowers and blackberry blossoms.

Ginger & Turmeric - Zingiber officinale & Curcuma longa

We source fresh, local-grown, organic ginger and turmeric from the worker-owned Organically Grown Company. This root combo is warming and classically useful---a combo often found alongside honey and lemon in 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.
