With Star Anise, Pink Peppercorns, Ancho Chiles, Summer Wildflower Honey and our special yeast. This mead has a dry, medium-bodied anise flavor, and received a 97 out of 100 rating at the 2016 Mazer Cup, the world’s largest mead competition. The peppercorn and chile contribute a mild spicy complexity, while enriching Super Star’s gorgeous amber color. This mead has a lovely warming effect and is especially delicious in the winter. Merchant empires grew large based on the trade of the irresistible pepper, for good reason. Star Anise, famous from a long history of use as a flavoring agent, is also a stalwart fighter of colds and flu and will chase away winter from your comfort zone.
