Expanding into liquor stores around Alberta gives us a chance to educate more people about mead. As the oldest alcoholic beverage it is still shrouded in mystery. Is it a beer or a wine? Is it super sweet like Ice Wine? How long does it last? How do you drink it? What can you pair it with? For those who don’t get a chance to visit the meadery in person, how can you get these questions answered? We’re happy to tell you that Art, the Mazer of our award winning meads, will be on site at the Timberlands Central Alberta Co-op Liquor store in Red Deer. Set your calendar for May 25th,...

  Another batch of Black & Blue is in progress and this week saw the addition hundreds of  pounds of black currants. Our black currants are from Kayben Farm – only a few miles away. The nest addition will be blueberries from BC. In our melomels (mead with fruit) we try to use local sources whenever we can. Now if only we could find a supply of Alberta blueberries!  The most difficult part for Chinook Arch Meadery staff is the regular tasting that must be done in order to assist Mazer Art in deciding exactly when the mead is ready for the next step. 🍷 Looking for a way to...

Mead Matters – Nov 2016

The fermentation room is a busy place these days. Meads in production now include the popular Ginger Bochet which we haven’t had on the shelves since last fall. It will be out just in time for Christmas – a great gift idea! This mead is a perfect balance of honey sweet and ginger heat, and makes a superb digestif as well.  Apples are a treasured fall fruit so why not celebrate the season with this apple cider mead cocktail. This is excellent to enjoy on a chilly day, especially if you can gently heat it beforehand. Ingredients: 750 ml (26 oz) Chinook Arch Meadery Fire ‘n...
