Fade to Black is our sweet cherry mead with a twist. It matured for a while over broken black pepper corns. The taste evolves from an explosion of dark, sweet cherries to a subtle bite from the black pepper. Fade to Black never gets spicy, but the aroma and the tingling associated with black pepper are unmistakingly there. Fade to Black’s velvetlike texture makes for a perfect aperitif. The more adventurous among us may want to try Fade to Black with a steak with pepper sauce or -for our vegetarian friends- a chees platter with a bold Livarot, Herve of Vièrge Folle.

It has been highly valued since ancient times and it was the drink of kings and aristocrats. That's why today, it's also an excellent gift.
