Nighthawks At 45th St. is fruity with a warm, dark berry and caramel aroma. The blend of black currants and Belgian dark candi give this mead a pleasant tartness wrapped in a velvet glove that will make your mouth water and keep you coming back for more. Nighthawks is delicious right now and is also designed to age and mature over time. Best enjoyed in a library surrounded by leather-bound books and rich mahogany.
This is a first for Bottleworks: a mead collaboration. It was only a matter of time and finding the right meadery to do dance with. Artivem swooped into the PNW, via their old jobs at a popular meadery in Arizona, earning the respect of the local market in such a short time. And needless to say, we fell in love with their meads.
We got together and decided to brew something appropriate for Bottleworks, a company with deep roots in Belgian beer. And a with that came the Belgian Candi Syrup (normally found in stronger Belgian beers such as dubbels and tripels). The black currants are an added not to our favortie lambics. No, this is not your Renaissance Festival, sweet honey water that your used to. This is a wine-like drink with depth and dryness that only Artivem could bring to the table.
And yes, the name is a Tom Waits reference because he has depth, complexity, and gets better with age. Just like what’s in this bottle.
