What is Mead?

The history of wine goes back thousands of years. However, historians hail mead as the first alcoholic drink. Mead is an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting honey mixed with water, and often with added ingredients such as fruits, spices, grains, or hops. The alcoholic content can range quite a bit from one mead to another. In a category of its own, this unique drink is unlike any wine, beer or even cider. 

- Mead is referred to as "The Nector of The Gods" due to the fact that it was often consumed as a way to honor the gods. 

- Vikings frequestly drank mead to celebrate successful battles and voyages.
