As the summer heat keeps rising and beach traffic gets busier and busier, Lewes' R&L Liquors teamed up with Milton meadery Brimming Horn to offer a sweet fruity beverage with a refreshing citrus finish.
R&L Liquors is a well-known, established liquor store located in downtown Lewes. Employee Chris Banz explains how the collaboration came about. "I've been a fan of Brimming Horn's meads since they opened. They're on the cutting edge of their craft and that's what we try to do at R&L Liquors too. Over the last couple years I've gotten to know everyone there better, so I thought: what would be more exciting than designing an awesome summer beverage with great people? I'm very excited about this mead and I know everyone that tries it will love it as much as we do."
Mead-maker and founder of Brimming Horn Meadery Jon Talkington goes on to talk about the mead itself and what the customer can expect. "The mead is a raspberry lemongrass mead made with wildflower honey, red raspberries and lemongrass. Raspberries pair very well with the bright citrus notes of lemongrass which make a perfect mead for the summer season. It features a beautiful deep-red color, aromatic, with flavors of red tart raspberries, light honey sweetness and the refreshing hint of citrusy lemongrass in the finish and aroma. Enjoy slightly chilled in a wine glass!”
Raspberry Lemongrass will only be available at R&L Liquors and the Brimming Horn Meadery Friday, July 23, for $19.99. This collaboration mead will be in limited quantities, so act fast.
