what is Oaken Shell mead?

Oaken Shell mead is a high-quality drink produced by the simple process of fermenting honey with filtered water and natural yeast.

mead-making process

 

It takes approximately 30 days to turn raw ingredients into Oaken Shell mead. We start by making a "must," or a raw mixture of Basswood honey, filtered water, and natural yeast. The yeast ferments the honey for 3.5 weeks until the must reaches an alcohol content of 7%. We then add flavors like fruits, spices, and even more honey. The fruits are removed, and the mead is filtered and bottled. At this point, Oaken Shell mead is ready to be served!
