Another one that I’ve picked up from Schmaltz Brewing Company, this has a beautiful label featuring a stylized pomegranate plant with great coloration and design. It also features a great rundown of the history and culture of the pomegranate not only in Jewish history but in other cultures as well:
In Jewish tradition, pomegranates symbolize righteousness, with seeds said to number 613, the total commandments in Torah. In deut. 8:8, pomegranates, barley and wheat prove the bounty of the Land of Milk and Honey. The calyx atop the fruit inspired the original Jewish crown. One Persian hero of myth consumed a pomegranate and became invincible. Mohammad instructed : “Eat the pomegranate, for it purges the system of envy and hatred.” Newlywed Greeks eager for a family crush one under heel for fertility. Buddha cured a child-devouring deomoness of her evil habit by instructing her to eat a pomegranate. Whether for knowledge or temptation, for virtue or valor, for art or for love, revel in the sumptuous pleasures of Origin.
