Ozark Beauty

Dry - 12% alc/vol

A simple mead with three basic ingredients: water, yeast, honey yet sophisticatedly complex in flavor. This mead is made from honey from Ozark Mountains of northern Arkansas. These happy ladies harvested nectar and pollen from beautiful mountain landscapes rather than monocrop fields.

Sunflower Delight

Dry - 12% alc/vol

A traditional bone dry mead made from nectar from wildflowers, soybean and clover. This honey made from bees living in southeastern Kansas helped to make a refreshing beverage with a clean, crisp finish.

Kanza Cyser

Dry - 9.5% alc/vol

A cyser is a mead fermented from apple juice rather than water.  Sweet and bittersweet apples from Kansas, Missouri, and New York orchards were pressed and mixed with Kansas wildflower honey to make this crisp, dry mead.



Zydeco Meadery is produced at 456 Wineries, a wine incubator, located on the campus of Highland Community College (HCC).  The purpose of HCC's wine incubator is "help wineries begin operations, build clientele and inventory, and then eventually move on to become stand-alone wineries".
