Strawberry Banana Mead

The Honey

When bees create wildflower honey they are free to pollinate and gather nectar from whatever flowers they seek out to be as premium enough for their queen and her young.  The end result is a very rich blend of nectars from countless numbers and types of flowers with the wildflower honey flavor we are all so familiar with.

The Fruit

Our premium grade USDA whole Strawberries came straight from California, when they arrived they had already met the stringent USDA guidelines for premium fruit, but us at Martin Brothers Winery are always striving for the best we can do, so we went above and beyond by hand sorting and destemming each and every strawberry to ensure that only the reddest and ripest strawberries went into this mead. The Bananas were imported fresh from Nicaragua and Costa Rica and ripened to perfection, after which each and every banana was hand inspected, sorted, and hand peeled to ensure only the pure ripe banana went into every bottle of our Strawberry Banana Mead.

The Method

This Strawberry Banana Mead is a Melomel Mead made entirely from Wildflower honey and fermented together with only the highest grade of strawberries and bananas, all on premium American oak.
