What Is Mead?
Mead, also known as Honey Wine, is honey and water fermented with yeast to create an alcoholic beverage. Mead is an ancient drink, often with a medieval reputation thanks to pop culture. However, Mead dates back even further than that and is often cited as the first alcoholic beverage. Making a comeback in recent years, Mead is often flavoured with a variety of spices and fruits.
What Does Mead Taste Like?
The taste of Mead is dependent on the flavour of honey used, as well as the fruit added to it. Depending on the bottle, it can taste similar to a white wine, fruit wine, or cider.
When trying Mead for the first time, choose one flavoured with a fruit you are familiar with or either Sweet/Dry. Similar to Craft Beer, Mead comes in a variety of flavours - find your taste today.
