Meadery enters the Door County beverage scene
Considered the world’s first fermented beverage, mead (honey-based wine) is a niche adult beverage that is steadily growing in popularity. Now Mixed Meadery – Door County’s first meadery – makes its products and shares a tasting room with Hatch Distilling Co., 7740 Hwy 42 in Egg Harbor.
Mixed Meadery’s range of meads – and soon ciders and wines – showcase local ingredients and focus on affordable, fresh and well-balanced products. By July, mead will have three options on the shelves: a dry sparkling mead (Brut), a slightly sweeter sparkling mead (Sec) and a “cyser”, made with honey and apples and blended with cherries. tarts from Door County.
