Vanaheim Gold: Our first honey wine product
We wish to raise money to complete our goal of producing 4,000 bottles of our first honey wine label.
The Project: Vanaheim Gold, our first label.
Vanaheim Gold is the name of our mead. It is a nod to one of the nine worlds of the World Tree where live the "green" Gods of farming, fertility and frolicing. Our use of the World Tree on the label represents all the realms and the rich stories of creation that have been passed down through bardic song for well more than a hundred generations.
The sweet reddish hued product within our bottle is the collected effort of rainwater, collected and purified in Bastrop County, and honey, collected from an East Texas honey farm with hives all over the east Texas Big Thicket and along the Texas Gulf Coast. Together, they make a sweet dessert wine that boasts a rich nutty taste of oak and mesquite with a subtle, fruity aftertaste of fruit trees and wildflowers.
We intend to produce many different fruit variants to our mead as well as experiment with certain spices and herbs. And that takes time...and resources.
Producing our first honey wine label in a 4,000 bottle quantity is our goal. Although we intend to have other labels later that represent different fruits and spices, this first run will be our standard consistent product.
We would like to call on all those who drink mead on a regular basis yet are discontent with the limited commercial products on the shelf that gets passed off as mead. We would like to get the support of all those with the Renaissance circuit, the SCA reenacters, the Celtic reconstructionists, the Druidic reconstructionist, those who support European history and culture, those who exist in the circles of Pagan and Heathen spirituality.
This is an open, public call for all those people to give what you can to make a bit of history within the state of Texas. We are a Go Texan-approved product with plenty of potential for success, just not enough of that magical credit, collateral and personal resources to comple our goal . But, together, we can make it something beneficial for us all.
We look forward to the success through your support.
