Swallow this…

Many years ago, a mysterious book was discovered by a group of friends in a Ferndale, MI basement.

A translation of its contents revealed the recipe for an ancient beverage using mango juice, honey and black pepper.

What they didn’t realize was that creating the beverage had dire consequences.

Stricken by fear after its completion, the friends tried to contain the terrifying forces into this very bottle.

Once opened, however, no one can say for sure if it can be conquered. Defend your soul or join us…

Aroma- sweet and floral mango notes, followed by spicy black pepper and a spicy yeast character.

Flavor- fruity mango wine backed by citrusy honey brightness. Finishes with lively black pepper.

Mouthfeel- light carbonation creates a crisp clean feel that washes away quickly. Very drinkable.

Food Pairings:

Sushi, ginger, Thai or Indian curries, most Middle Eastern and South Asian cuisines. Very food-friendly.
