Award Winning Mead
B. Nektar has won two new medals for it's Orange Blossom (Bronze) and Yo Momma's Strawberry Pizzazz (Silver) from the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition in New York.
Congratulations to Paul Zimmerman and Ian Radogost-Givens (our mead makers) on a great job.
Reading Batch Numbers
Have you ever seen that little label on the back of a bottle of B. Nektar Mead? You know, the one with all the numbers on it that looks like it's a price sticker? Well it's a batch number. Every bottle of mead we produce comes with a handy dandy batch number which, if you know how to read it, will tell you exactly when it was made, and the batch number. Here's how it works.|
In the picture above, the bottle is from Release 46, made in September of 2009.
The first 3 numbers represent the batch number.
The last 4 numbers represent the month and year the mead was made.
We do realize that we have a Y21K problem. We're working on it. :)
|Strawberry Banana Pizzazz (APRIL)|
It's here! This mead is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S! (pardon the bad musical reference)
This is our Strawberry Pizzazz aged with bananas. Call us captain obvious, but this one tastes just like it sounds. HUGE banana aromas with a sweet strawberry deliciousness to back it up. We sent Paul, our head mead maker, all the way to the produce terminal in 3rd-world East Detroit to acquire the ripest, freshest bananas we could find. We let the bananas get brown spots, then tossed them into the mead (we did peel them first).
Sommelier descriptors: Yummy, awesome, fruit-on-the-bottom, sneaky, delicious, flirty, sexy, happy.
We'll be sampling this mead during our April tastings on the 1st and 3rd Fridays. We're open between 5:30pm and 10pm. See Directions Below
