What Is Mead?
Mead is the world's oldest alcoholic beverage but has made a comeback in the recent decade thanks to popular shows and movies such as Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings, and historical depictions of Vikings. But what really is Mead? Also known as Honey Wine, Mead is made using a process similar to wine, but with honey instead of grapes. Water, honey, and yeast make up the base of any Mead recipe, but it is often flavoured with various fruits and spices.
