Black Bart's Blackberry Melomel

Legend has it that when Pirate Black Bart's men were hanged in Hampton, VA, in 1720, one brazen fellow drank a final toast at the gallows( we like to think it was mead) and vowed Damnation to the Governor and Colony. Pirate Robert's had a reputation for avenging his men, so this was not taken lightly, and the Governor lived in fear for many years. While our Black Bart's Blackberry Melomel can be taken as you wish, we suggest you toast the continued good health of your mates and leave the Governor's fate to history.
