Infused with ancho, moritas and japones, Wild Blossom Meadery’s Pirates Blood has a smoky warmth that gives way to a honey finish.

The sweet and spicy mead is bottled with two chili peppers to increase heat with age.

Wild Blossom Meadery and Winery is the only mead producer on the Northern Illinois Wine Trail, creating wine and mead using locally produced ingredients for more than 20 years.
