Brimming Horn Meadery of Delaware is collaborating with post-metal band Junius for a new bourbon barrel mead.
The mead will be called “Eternal Rituals” with 11-14 percent alcohol by volume and based on Junius’ album, “Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light.” Eternal Rituals is made from North Dakota clover honey, a light floral honey with a hint of spice. After fermentation the mead was placed in bourbon barrels for more than three months. The bourbon barrels come from a distillery based out of New York, which impart hints of vanilla, caramel and spice. There will be 180 bottles available.
