Portland, Maine — The team at Vacationland Distributors, LLC. proudly announce their first partnership with a meadery: Sap House Meadery, based in Ossippee, New Hampshire.

“We are excited to welcome a couple world-class mead makers into the fold,” says Jim O’Brien, Co-Founder and President of Vacationland Distributors, LLC. “Matt Trahan and Ash Fischbein are crafting some of the world’s best mead just 45 minutes from Portland, and we couldn’t be more proud to represent them.”

“Our meads are unique in the market in their level of balance and depth of flavor,” says Matt Trahan, Sap House co-founder. “Many meads are either very flavorful but very sweet, or light and dry but lacking in character. We use a traditional no-boil technique, fresh local ingredients, and significant aging to create meads that are drier and lighter, but have incredible complexity and body.”

Sap House produces several award-winning meads soon to be available throughout the state:

  • SUGAR MAPLE – Bronze Medal, 2011 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition; Bronze Medal, 2012 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition
  • HOPPED BLUEBERRY MAPLE – Gold Medal, 2012 Mazer Cup International Mead Competition; Silver Medal, 2012 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition
  • VANILLA BEAN – Gold Medal, 2012 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition; Bronze Medal, 2012 Florida State Fair International Wine Competition
  • OSSIPIOJA – Gold Medal, 2012 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition
  • CHOCOLATE (seasonal)– Silver Medal, 2012 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition
  • CRANBERRY SAGE (seasonal) – Silver Medal, 2012 Mazer Cup International Wine Competition; Bronze Medal, 2012 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition

Matt Trahan will be touring the state with the Vacationland team June 1st through June 3rd, with free tastings in the evenings at several locations around Maine..
