  • The Black Fox Meadery started in former accountant turned mead-brewer Bob Lasseter’s Palm Harbor home. Nearly every space is his kitchen was filled with bottles and jugs of mead. There were 12 full containers, or carboys, their contents in various stages of fermentation, near the window.

     

    This has become more than Lasseter’s hobby; it’s now a passion turned business with Lasseter’s St. Bartholomew mead.

     

    Despite its ancient roots, Lasseter believes a wider of appreciation of mead was lost with time as sugar gained in popularity and honey became more expensive.

     

    “When the average person hears the word mead, they’re thinking of some probably overly sweet beverage that tastes like honey. But see, that’s the furthest thing from the truth. Because mead could be dry, sweet, medium. You can make a traditional mead with just honey but typically you have other things with it,” said Lasseter.

     

    Those other things include a wide variety of fruit-and-spice combinations.

     

    He points to the labels on various jugs, “This is a grape chipotle; blueberry coconut; blackberry-blueberry-cinnamon; cherry chipotle; coconut-pineapple; mint; jalapeno-lime; cyser, which has apple cider; juniper berries – which you make gin from. So you have such a wide variety that it should have a broad appeal.”

     

    Black Fox will bring two kinds of mead to the market: full-bodied and short. The full-bodied meads will ship under the St. Bartholomew brand, named after the patron saint of the honey crop. These meads are aged between 10-12 months, with an ABV of 14 percent.

     

    The short meads – made with less honey – have a lighter ABV of around 5 percent, and need to age for only two months.

     

    “I can find something that will appeal to most everybody,” said Lasseter.
