Schramm’s Raspberry is a raspberry mead made from whole Michigan raspberries and Orange Blossom honey purchased directly from Fruitwood Orchards, a New Jersey apiary that pollinates citrus in Florida. It is drinkable on purchase, but as a result of the high level of acidity in the berries, it can age gracefully for several years. It pairs well with grilled salmon, salads, and cheesecake.
Honey wine, which tends to be quite strong and alcoholic-tasting, as honey ferments very well. Mead is often made with other ingredients for flavour, be they fruit or grain. The latter is known as braggot.
