We assembled a team of mead specialists to judge all entrants in this category in 2017.
Also, a special award was designed in 2017 to recognize the top meadery in Georgia. The winner of that award was The Viking Alchemist Meadery in Marietta.
Georgia now has seven meaderies, with at least one or two more in various stages of development. Among them, long-established Savannah Bee Company has launched a line of meads.
In addition, some wineries are developing their own line of meads, such as Still Pond Vineyard near Albany, GA. So this is another fermented product that enthusiasts will want to keep in their focus going forward.
