Earle Estates Meadery

They are a family owned meadery making mead since 1993. And they are located in Seneca New York. Check out their website here.

I tasted a selection of their meads and my favorite one is the Semi-sweet contemporary mead. My next favorite was "Twinkle" which is a carbonated mead.


They carry a wide variety of flavored fruit meads that are a blend of wine and mead. For example their Creamy Apricot Mead is a blend of 30% Apricot wine and 70% Honey Mead. If you are new to mead but familiar with wines this might be a very nice bridge for you between the two. I personally really like blended meads.

Here are the meads they have available:

  • Black Jewel: Raspberry
  • Blueberry Bounty
  • Cherry Charisma
  • Creamy Apricot
  • Crusin' Cranberry
  • Contemporary Semi-dry
  • Contemporary Semi-sweet
  • Pear Mead
  • Raspberry Reflection
  • Ruby Red: Cherry
  • Strawberry Shadows
  • Summer Delight: Rhubarb and strawberry
  • Traditional Mead



I asked and they courteously allowed me to go in the back to see where all the fermenting was going on. These next two pictures show their mead making operation.

The book includes a short history of mead, a look at the different types and flavors you can make, a guide to the equipment needed (which isn't much), and a frequently asked questions section.

Mead is a drink that has been shrouded in mystery for centuries but now the secret to how to easily make it has been revealed in this book.
