There are plenty of legends in the sage of mead wine. The story behind pyment is that when sugar made its way to Europe in the 15th century, honey became scarce. Grapes had migrated north with the Roman conquests. The shortage of honey created a need to stretch the honey. The newly available grapes were combined with honey and pyment was born. Hidden Legend Meadery’s pyment is a blend of red grape wine and honey wine crafted to commemorate this period of history.

750, corked and waxed. Thanks, Adam! These are all really solid. Pours a crystal clear burgundy. Bright acidic grape wine nose, a little blackberry and a little currant. Floral honey notes as well. Watery medium body. The fruits and honey work well together on the mid palate. A little sweet and a little tart.
