Brimming Horn Meadery teams up with Chicago's The Atlas Moth and Dark Matter Coffee! Available Now!!!
Milton, DE., October 30,2018 – Brimming Horn Meadery returns with their fourth metal and mead series...This time teaming up with Chicago’s premier post-metal band The Atlas Moth. If that wasn’t exciting enough, Chicago’s finest coffee purveyors Dark Matter Coffee sent down their special blend for the collaboration. Hence “Detective Valentine’s Proprietary” was born. Made from buckwheat and wildflower honey, coffee, vanilla beans and then aged in bourbon barrels for 3 months, this is a coffee lover’s dream and will be available this Friday, November 2nd.
Contact between Brimming Horn and vocalist/guitarist Stavros Giannopoulos began in mid-January about joining forces to create a specialty mead just for them. Co-owner JR Walker explains “Stavros happened to mention that Dark Matter Coffee was doing a specialized coffee for the release of their new album Coma Noir, so I sent Jon the message and he got the creative juices flowing, so of course we had to use their own coffee for their mead. We couldn’t be more excited to work with a band of their caliber and I think everyone will love this new mead”.
Mead-maker Jon Talkington goes on to say " Once I heard that The Atlas Moth had their own coffee it just seemed too perfect not to put it in the mead. I chose dark buckwheat honey and wildflower honey as a base; coffee beans and vanilla beans were added right after fermentation and then the mead was transferred into a bourbon barrel to age and mellow for 3 months. I wanted the coffee to flavor the mead but not take over the honey, vanilla and barrel notes. All the ingredients shine through in “Detective Valentine’s Proprietary” and it’s a sweet complex mead with a lot of flavor! "
Here’s what to expect from the “Coffee Noir” addition from Dark Matter hype man Jake Kryshak. “When working with The Atlas Moth, we knew we needed to craft a blend that could stand tall with Coma Noir's massive psychedelic thunder. With that in mind, we took washed coffees from our partners in Guatemala and El Salvador to produce a complex blend with notes of Nougat, Peach, and Amaretto. When you're drinking Coma Noir, mysterious shadows turn into sinister personalities, and at the end of it all there may be no one left to trust but yourself--and your cup of coffee”.
“Detective Valentine’s Proprietary” is based on the Atlas Moth’s latest album Coma Noir which was released in February on Prosthetic Records and hit the Billboard Music Charts at #24 for Top New Artists albums. This mead will be bottled in 500ml black ceramic bottles and available for $26.99. Pick one up at Brimming Horn’s mead hall in Milton, Delaware or online from vinoshipper.com orwww.brimminghornmeadery.com this Friday November 2nd. Brimming Horn meadery ships to 42 different states.
