Mead Maker's Notes

" Poppy was one of our first meads. It is a sweet mead that uses dried Jamaican rose flowers, which you can see and taste when you walk around the estate. The floral and fruity notes of tropical forest honey complement and balance the acid, fruity/floral and bitter from the Jamaican rose. It is more of a digestive, dessert wine that has some similarities to a sweet sherry." - Alejandra Araya

Delicious amapola!

Amapola is one of my favorites from Meadery! You can drink it alone, on the rocks, or make an Amapola spritz cocktail (add some seltzer and orange peel zest), and you could taste summer! I enjoy this honey wine a lot!

Really good with Blue Cheese!

Amapola is my favorite sweet honey wine from Costa Rica Meadery. Whenever I am going to have a slice of blue cheese (or any strong cheese), I pour myself a little Amapola and enjoy the great pairing. Also... I love to use Amapola as a replacement for sweet vermouth in my favorite cocktails - (Manhattan, Negroni Americano).
