Question: Just tasted a Hydromel 11 year old drink but what is it?
Answer: It was just served at the IWFS Festival dinner in Quebec City at Saint-Amour restaurant. It is a special Quebec mead made by Desrochers from fermented honey named Or D’Age (Vin de Miel Liquoreux – Sweet Honey Wine). About 1.35 kilos of honey are needed to produce 4.5 litres of sweet styled mead at around 14 degrees alcohol. Better ones such as this can be aged up to say 15 years in oak barriques and last well after bottling. Makes a unique matching with cheeses and desserts including chocolate.
