Psenkova Cherry mead will be served at the Greening of Detroit's 20th Anniversary Celebration. The celebration is a dinner event to be held at Michael Symon's Roast Restaurant in Downtown Detroit. Psenkova has always loved Detroit and the achievements of The Greening of Detroit Organization over the past 20 years are magnificent. We are very proud to have been chosen to be part of a pairing menu for the event.

Psenkova Cherry Mead:
So few fermented drinks capture the essence of their ingredients that finding one is cause for celebration, doubly so when those ingredients are local. Born of honey and cherries from Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula, Psenkova Cherry Mead bursts with aromas of flowers and earth and time. Far from cloying, a sip starts mildly sweet with a hint of cherry tartness to turn pleasantly dusty toward the end. Or try the Peach Apricot Mead. Both are handcrafted in small batches at 45 North Vineyards & Winery.
