What is Mead?
Mead-honey wine, is considered to be the oldest alcoholic beverage in recorded history, with origins in European, African, and Asian societies dating back 6,000 years. Mead is an alcoholic beverage created by fermenting honey with water, sometimes with various fruits, spices, grains, and hops. The defining characteristics of mead is that the majority of the beverages fermentable sugar is derived from honey. The flavor of any honey is largely determined by the nectar of the floral source from which it was derived. Just as every flower has its fragrance, every varietal of honey has its own distinct essence. It is this signature essence that determines the unique character of each of our mead varietals.
