Hidden Legend Dark Honey Mead....$17.99
Our dark honey mead is a direct descendant of our most popular mead wine, this robust yet semi-dry honey wine is made from a darkened honey that produces rich tones and clearly defined layers of flavor. Hidden Legend dark honey mead complements heartier meat dishes, wild game, rich ethnic meals, spicy foods, and chocolate. Best served either slightly chilled or at room temperature.
This honey mead has an almost bourbon like quality that appeals to whiskey sippers as well as mead wine connoisseurs. This honey mead appeals to our beer drinkers as well though it is not a beer but a honey wine.
Dark Mead is traditionally known and a bochet. Using the same wildflower honey as the Pure Honey Mead, the process used to make this mead wine is different in that the honey is heated until it turns a rich amber color before the fermentation. The darkened honey creates a robust honey mead with very complex malty, smoky, and caramel flavors that make this mead wine the perfect companion to many of your favorite hardier dishes. Some of our mead wine drinkers say that this honey mead reminds them of a porter or even a stout beer.

Hidden Legend Spiced Honey Mead....$17.99
Spiced Honey Mead has a special place in the history of many cultures. The coveted recipes were carefully guarded by honey mead makers who were members of the clergy.

This honey wine complements turkey or pork, and is best served slightly chilled.
Mulled honey mead, known as metheglin, has been a favorite of kings and queens. Like many meaderies, we have come up with a secret recipe of our own that we believe is worthy of royalty.

Hidden Legend Elderberrry Honey Mead...$17.99
This delicious elderberry honey wine has a subtle port-like quality that makes it perfect for sipping and for complementing your favorite chocolate or sharp cheese. Elderberry honey wine was said to be the favorite of Hippocrates (the father of medicine) and the early pioneers of Montana. Best served slightly chilled.  This honey mead has a port like mouth feel that makes it perfect for sipping. This is also a historical blend of honey wine and elderberries that many people throughout history have believed is synonymous with medicine. Hippocrates used honey wine often as medicine and so it is the root word for the practice. We have no idea if he was on to something or not but it is interesting conversation none the less.

Hidden Legend Chokecerry Honey Mead....$17.99
A wild cherry that grows prolifically throughout Montana, the Chokecherry got its name because it doesn’t sweeten until after a frost. Montanans have used it for years to make their favorite syrup and jelly. This tradition, inspired our winemaker to marry this familiar flavor with local honey wine, and create a true Montana mead wine and the winner of our first gold medal. Serve slightly chilled.  This mead wine is our most award winning honey mead! It has won two gold medals in international wine competitions. This is a prime example of honey mead taking the form of a fine table wine.  This honey wine is not too sweet. It is a good balance of flavors that lends itself well to food pairing.
