When Yoginee first heard about mead, an idea started forming in her head. An earthy honey and spices together would make a wonderful infusion. The hunt for an earthy honey began. It soon came to fruition in one of her travels when she found jamun honey.
The combination of spices used in the mead had everything from her kitchen: ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper, you name it and it was there in the mead.
That mead had interesting and complex notes. Finally working with Ashwini to tinker the ratio and adjusting the ingredients brought them to the final recipe of Yule Spice, which boasts of all woody spices. ginger, cinnamon and French oak.
Yule Spice, a honey forward metheglin that we all are proud of!
