Odd Elixir Meads is a small batch meadery located inside DeLand Abbey in Historic Downtown DeLand, Florida.
Our journey began a decade ago when a visit to a Renaissance Festival sparked an interest in what mead was and why everyone was so upset that the mead was gone. Why was the mead gone and why did people care so much!? After several failed attempts to pick up a bottle of mead at the local bottle shop Ann-Marie turned to the internet. What she found was that, as a long time wine maker, she already knew the basics of how to make mead and didn’t even realize it! That is when her obsession began and the mead has been flowing ever since.
At Odd Elixir, our approach to meads marries traditional techniques with a creative approach to ingredients and flavor integration. Odd Elixir believes in working with the local community as much as possible. It is our goal to seek out small, family owned suppliers and partners for all aspects of our business whenever possible. We are inspired, not only by the amazing local flavors Florida has to offer, but by the wonderful variety and creativity within the craft beer community.
