trader joe's mead?
 
I was at a trader joe's in Maine today an went to the wine section. I noticed they had mead... It was $12 a bottle so the wife wasn't down for me grabbing one right then. I was wondering if any one has tried it an if it was good?

Any feed back would be cool thanks.

Do you recall what the brand was? I know the TJ's near me carried Chaucer's at one point.

Trader Joes carries mostly private-label stuff in general - but that sometimes extends to their beer and wine.

I know Unibroue, that makes La Fin Du Monde, also make Trader Joes vintage ale.

I'm guessing something similar happened with their mead.

lol, wow, alcohol is sure cheap in the US. Here in Canada a bottle of the cheapest hard liquor is $25 (40%), and $12 is really cheap wine. And everything that comes 1 litre in the US is 750ml here in Canada! Hence why I got into homebrewing. You'd be hard pressed to find a 6 pack cans of beer for less than $10.

$12 for mead, even if it is just decent, is a REALLY good price. I'm going to have to check my Trader Joe's now to see if they have it!
