MOGADORE, Ohio – Kent Waldeck is doing everything he can to see that a very old drink enjoys newfound popularity.
Waldeck owns Crafted Artisan Meadery, which makes a variety of honey wines. He has won awards – he counts a Mazer Cup among his accolades, a prestigious honor among mead makers – and constantly tinkers with creative flavors.
But now he is calling on his marketing background to get the word out. He realizes simply chatting with customers who come in to taste by the small tasting bar, tongue-and-groove poplar reclaimed from old wallboard, isn’t enough.
“We’re really big,” Waldeck said, “but no one around here knows we’re big.”
