This earthy, brightly acidic mead balances the lingering tartness of whole blackberries and carefully selected honey. Intensely fruity with balanced acidity, a complex flavor profile and an earthy aroma, this mead is reminiscent of picking fruit on a mid-summer day. A strong option for the cellar, blackberry will continue to mature and develop in the bottle for years. Blackberry pairs well with creamy cheeses, duck, and veal.
Schramm's Cranberry mead takes the distinct tartness of the earthy, fragrant and penetrating cranberry and matches it with the sweet, yet balanced style for which Schramm’s Mead is known. The pronounced acidity of the fruit demands to be offset by substantial sweetness, and the vast number and throaty nature of the berry’s flavor compounds requires pairing with a complex, full-bodied honey.
Marionberry is a melomel made purely from Willamette Valley Marion Blackberries. Marionberry has a full, natural fruit acidity that is balanced by premium Orange Blossom honey sweetness to create an extremely flavorful mead. Very dark in color, the Marionberries provide a jammy, juicy fruit-forward character. This mead has great aging potential for many years, though it’s pure fresh fruit character may make it difficult to leave alone for long.
Schramm's Michigan Apple was made with a carefully selected blend of locally sourced and pressed Michigan apple varieties. The slightly drier, tart notes of the cider blend balance beautifully with the sweetness and body of the honey. This cyser is a tribute to our home state's beautiful fall days and our fine community of fruit growers.
Schramm’s Madeline is our boysenberry mead, made with whole boysenberries and orange blossom honey. A cross between European raspberry, common blackberry and American dewberry, the boysenberry has a unique tannic flavor which combines wonderfully with carefully selected premium honey. The resulting mead is thick, jammy and extremely flavorful and pours dark purple with a very smooth, lightly tart finish. This mead is a tribute to our favorite, tiny release to date, Madeline June Schramm Naeger. Ten percent of sales of this mead are donated to the Royal Oak Beaumont NICU, where Madeline spent nearly the first three months of her life. She was beautiful when she was born, but we know she will continue to mature beautifully with age.
Schramm’s Maravilla red raspberry mead is crisp and bright, with a powerful, enticing, and familiar raspberry character. Enjoy with bruschetta, aged white cheese, and chocolate lava cake. Maravilla will age gracefully for many years to come.
