Mead and Metal series #0002  "Eternal Rituals"


After a successful foray in to the music collaboration world with death metal juggernauts Incantation, Brimming Horn is back collaborating with one of America's biggest post-metal bands Junius. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-yN5358-S8

The discussions began to take shape roughly six months ago when Brimming Horn contacted vocalist Joseph Martinez in hopes to collaborate on a special one of a kind mead with the band.  "We were approached by Brimming Horn after our east coast tour to put out a Junius mead and after sampling and finishing (quickly) a few of their meads we honed in on a bourbon barrel aged version. We are beyond stoked to put this out." says vocalist Joseph E. Martinez

The mead will be called "Eternal Rituals" 11-14% ABV and based on their critically acclaimed album "Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light".  Eternal Rituals is made from North Dakota clover honey, a light floral honey with a hint of spice. After fermentation the mead was placed in bourbon barrels for over 3 months.  The bourbon barrels come from a high end distillery based out of NY which impart hints of vanilla, caramel and spice.  

Mead maker Jon Talkington had this to say " Junius' music is extremely complex just like our meads and we wanted to craft something that would appeal to the refined mead drinker as well as the sophisticated bourbon aficionado."  This is Brimming Horn's second foray into the mead and metal collaborations and as of now are the only meadery in the country who work with these high level bands.  "Junius is one of my all time favorite bands and it's a dream come true to work with such talented musicians and bring to life the mead they were interested in crafting. Jon did an amazing job with this one."  says co-owner JR Walker.  

Junius was formed in 2003 out of Boston, Massachusetts and Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light marks their third full length which was released in March on Prosthetic Records. 

Eternal Rituals mead will be released this Friday in the Brimming Horn tasting room in Milton, Delaware, as well as available online at vinoshipper.com and
