Well, I'm not here to knock anyone else's mead offerings.
But the American meaderies, like Moonlight and Schramms, make a mead that's VERY different from the Ontario offerings.
Instead of getting strong fermented honey characters, which can get in the herbal range, you have large fruit blends (in some cases, it's almost a 50:50 fruit to mead mix).
These drink like delicious end-of-meal sippers and, once opened, a bottle can be corked and refrigerated for up to a month...not that it will last a month. When I open a bottle for the two of us, it's usually gone within 2 days, if that.
I hope you'll enjoy. Moonlight has a lot of amazing products that I'd love to share with Ontarians.[/quote]
Do you know if the plan is to sell by the case or by the bottle?[/quote]
It will be online sales only, so it will be by the case (12 bottles per case).
We'll re-assess down the road to see if in-store sales makes sense versus web sales, but my gut instinct is that it will be web only due to it being such a niche alcohol.[/quote]
I wish you luck.....but not sure what kind of demand there will be for 12 bottles of mead from consumers.
