what is mead?

Mead (also known as honey-wine) is the oldest alcoholic drink known to man. It is made from honey and water via fermentation with yeast. Honey acts as the active sugar ingredient during the fermentation process; just like wine is made from grapes, our product comes from the bees’ sweet nectar. There are variations of mead that include the use of malts and grapes but as of now we do not produce any of these variations under the All-Wise branding.

How is mead served?

We suggest serving mead chilled. However, feel free to experiment: Try different meads at all temperatures - whether it’s mulled with spices or over ice! We even propose to the aspiring mixologist to try out different cocktail recipes with our product. If you find a great recipe, please pass it along! Depending on how you want to drink it, we suggest drinking from a wine glass to an old fashioned glass…

How is mead Stored?

We suggest storing your mead room temperature, in a dry place. If you want to store it in a wine fridge or cellar you can as well. Most people store mead as a regular wine.

Is mead gluten free?

Yes, our mead is Gluten Free! However, because we are not GF certified yet, we advise that you consume at your own risk. 

Is mead vegan?

The main ingredient used to create mead is honey. While bees make honey themselves, which is an animal product, whether you consume it or not depends on your beliefs as a vegan. However, our honey supplier (Tremblay Apiaries) uses safe extraction methods to protect their bees.

do you ship internationally?

We don’t ship internationally yet. Each country has different laws and tariffs regarding the exportation of alcohol, making it very difficult to distribute world-wide. If you are (or know) a distributor that could help us, reach us at allwisemeadery@gmail.com .

why don’t you ship to my state?

Unfortunately, we currently don’t ship to Arkansas, Delaware, Kentucky, Mississippi, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Utah. Due to individual state’s liquor laws, we are not allowed to ship directly to consumers. If you are a distributor that could help us, reach us at allwisemeadery@gmail.com .

Where do you source your ingredients from?

We source our honey from a local apiary found in Upstate New York called Tremblay Apiaries. Other ingredients used vary from season to season. For instance, our Oolong Tea and Rose Buds come from local distributors based in New York. Additionally, we use only the best municipal water from the State of New York.

Do you use sulfites?

All our products contain sulfites in them as it is a naturally occurring chemical. We do not explicitly add more than 25ppm sulfites to our products and use it only as a way for sterilization to the product for bottling purposes. Please read more on sulfites here.
