One of the world’s oldest fermented beverages, mead is also called honey wine, ambrosia or nectar. It is made by combining honey, water and yeast.

Mead has been known to be called the “ancestor of all fermented drinks.”

A variety of ingredients can be added to mead such as fruits and herbs. It can be carbonated like beer or more sparkling like cider or wine. Like beer, it can have a more hoppy flavor when hops are added. Distilled, mead is more a liqueur quality and is a brandy.


Go out and enjoy a glass of mead. (Always remember to drink responsibly and never to drink and drive) Post on social media using #MeadDay.
