Orchid Cellar Meadery and Winery

Maryland’s premier meadery, specializing in honey-wines. Alcoholic beverages were brewed by our ancestors before written records. We can only guess how it all started. Was it grain that got wet in the rain or grape juice left too long? We offer you an alternative explanation. Our answer is honey. From the Olympian Ambrosia, to the land “flowing with milk and honey”, honey-based beverages were produced by Egyptians, Greeks, Celts, Mayans—well, all civilizations that knew beekeeping. Most notable tradition of mead making can be found to this day in Poland. Enjoy our meticulous recreation of some old recipes. We use modern knowledge of chemistry and microbiology only to understand the process, not to interfere with it.
