Alchemy herbal honey wine is made with Asheville’s local Haw Creek Honey and our herbs and fruit are organic or natural and we are working to source as much as possible, locally.

Our Alchemy

The practice of alchemy has been used for thousands of years by many ancient cultures. Physically, it is the process of turning lead into monoatomic gold; spiritually, it is a metaphor for turning our leaden human experience into spiritual gold. Alchemy is about raising our vibration and transmuting the shadow with love. Balancing and raising the vibration of these inner polarities is a powerful means to create fulfillment within all of our relationships including ourselves.

Alchemy’s Love and Prosperity meads are often served at weddings. Mead is the oldest known alcoholic beverage and the word and concept of honeymoon came from the word honey wine because the new married couple were given a whole lunar cycle supply of mead to help consummate their marriage.

Herbal Wines and Meads

  Mead is an alcoholic beverage, and is made from fermenting honey, (diluted with water) with yeast. Mead is also referred to as “Honey Wine,” and although the main source of fermentable sugars in a mead come from honey, we sometimes add fruit, which also offers its fermentable sugars and delicious flavors. Adding other things to mead, like herbs and spices changes the “type” or “classification” of mead, and the most common term for this type of mead is called methoglin. Alcoholic fermentation is a biochemical process where yeast consumes sugar and produces alcohol and carbon dioxide. The alcohol content varies and can range from very low at 7% (which are called hydromels), to very high at about 18%.
