Legacy Mead in Vintages LCBO
Our Legacy Cyser is a unique apple and honey co-fermented mead with a long history. It was first created by R.W. Roman Sr. on March 22, 1980. He dreamt of one day opening an Ontario meadery but never had the chance – this would have been one of his core meads if he had opened his dream meadery. Before he passed in 1985, he hide the recipe in his desk drawer. It was only re-discovered in 2015. We followed his original recipe and recreated this ancestral Roman family mead. Aptly named after his Legacy.
Sweet with notes of crushed apple, honey, and white wildflowers, the refreshing acidity makes it an excellent apéritif, paired with cheese or enjoyed with savoury and fruity desserts. Best serve chilled. Can also be enjoyed in a tumbler on the rocks – this helps mellow the sweetness.
