Roses are from the apple family and the fruit of Rugiosa type roses are called "hips". They are high in Vtiamin C with delicate sweetness, apple-like in flavor with a hint of floral rose.
We use delicate WA clover honey as the base of this mead to display this fruit quality and add hibiscus for tannins and a beautiful ruby red color.
The result? A gorgeous dry mead with enough perceived sweetness to balance out the tartness with flavors of apples, hibiscus, and rose.
It's perfect for sharing with wine-drinkers who might be off-put by commercially prevalent sweet meads.
Chaos Curse is excellent in Sangrias in place of Spanish wine and other mead cocktails.
