If you know anything about this mead, the meadery or can offer any insight into this bottle It would be greatly appreciated. You can send me an email. I, and the owner of the bottle are also interested in knowing whether or not it is of any value to collectors. You can see by the picture that this is a special mead and it has a beautiful aged color.
