Traditionally called a Rhodomel. This mead is flavored with the fruits of a rosebush, and the hibiscus flower. Flowers and honey go hand in hand so there is no reason why this mead shouldn't be fantastic. Full bodied with a dark red color and strong floral aroma. Rhodomels were a popular demand in Ancient Rome. This mead goes best with sweets. Many years ago, a bride and groom would be married and both families would supply the newly weds with one months worth of mead. Full moon to Full moon. Honey is considered and aphrodisiac and mead was a gateway for the parents to say "Give us grandchildren..."

About Panacea

As one of the very first enjoyed alcoholic beverages, mead has a long and rich history. Fermented with honey — the original sweetener before sugar cane — it comes in countless varieties, from sweet to dry, and everything in between.

Mead's popularity has declined over the years after the invention of beer and increasing interest in grape wine. But we’re here to give it some much-deserved attention.

Named for the Greek goddess and overall symbol of good health, Panacea plans to make its mark on a region that’s not very familiar with the ancient beverage — our home in South Dakota.

Our production facility is headquartered in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and is currently self-distributing bottled and kegged meads to retailers across the state.
