Additional Information:

Mead has a rich history and cultural significance in many ancient civilizations, including those of the Norse, Celts, and Greeks. It was often associated with gods and mythology and used in rituals and celebrations.

It also traces its origins to the African bush, where the elements conspired to create mead in natural fermenters formed from hollowed-out trees. This theory speaks to the fundamental human experience of discovery, experimentation, and the appreciation of nature's gifts.

Today, mead remains a versatile and ancient beverage that continues to enjoy popularity. Many craft Meaderies produce both innovative and traditional styles, celebrating its rich heritage and diverse flavours.


The basic ingredients are honey, water, and yeast. Additional ingredients like fruits (to make Melomel), spices or herbs (to make Metheglin), or grains can be added for different flavour profiles.

Fermentation Process:

Mead is made by mixing honey and water and then fermenting the mixture with yeast. The yeast converts the sugars in the honey into alcohol. This process can take several weeks to several months, depending on the recipe and desired alcohol content.


There are numerous varieties of mead, including:

Traditional Mead: Made with just honey, water, and yeast.

Melomel: Mead with added fruit.

Metheglin: Mead with added spices or herbs.

Cyser: Mead made with apples or apple juice.

Pyment: Mead made with grapes or grape juice.

Braggot: Mead made with malted barley or other grains.

Sack Mead: A stronger, sweeter mead with a higher honey content.

Alcohol Content:

The alcohol content of mead can vary widely, typically ranging from about 5% to 20% alcohol by volume (ABV), depending on the recipe and fermentation process.

Flavour Profile:

The flavour of mead can range from very sweet to dry, depending on the amount of honey used and the fermentation time. The added fruits, spices, or grains can also significantly influence the taste.
