Chattanooga's Award Winning Meadery Hosts Tasting Event Nov. 18

  • Thursday, November 10, 2022

Flora de Mel, Chattanooga’s first meadery, is hosting their holiday exclusive small batch tasting event on Friday, Nov. 18, from 6-9 p.m. Flora de Mel mead makers will guide guests through a tasting of eight new meads, ranging from bold to refreshing.

Mead is alcohol made from honey, and is the oldest alcohol in the world, dating back to roughly 8,000 years ago. Down in popularity for many years, mead is now making a comeback as a craft beverage and is one of the fastest growing sectors of alcohol production in the United States.

Co-owners Jay and Stephanie Martin discovered mead in 2019 and the vision for Flora de Mel immediately began to unfold.

“We got to work immediately," said Mr. Martin. "Hundreds of gallons of different recipes, ranging from botanical, herbacious blends, to huge fruit bombs reminiscent of a bold wine. It was constant expirementation and refinement that led us to opening Chattanooga’s first meadery, Flora de Me."

Now open for over a year, Flora de Mel has produced over 60 unique meads using Georgia honey and has won a silver medal at the National Honey Board’s annual competition. With new small batch meads being released several times a year, and a barrel aging program where mead is aged from six months to one year, they are helping to put the Chattanooga area on the map as a craft alcohol town.
