  • About

    Specifically, Mead is also known as Honey Wine. During medieval times, mead was part of a marriage ritual, now known as the Honey Moon.

    While the most principal fermentable sugar in mead is honey, these fermentable sugars can be combined with various forms of fruit, with the addition of spices or even grains. Mead also varies greatly in terms of alcohol content, ranging from 5% to more than 20%. The varieties available to craft mead makers are endless

    Mead has a unique mouth-feel not shared by any other kind of alcohol, as it retains some of the character from honey, even if it is fermented dry (no remaining sweetness).

    The historical significance of early uses of mead plays a major role in modern culture, although its significance oftentimes goes unnoticed. During medieval times, mead was part of a marriage ritual. In fact, during Lithia, or the Summer Solstice, pagans believed that the month of June was considered to be the luckiest month in which to be married, and attributed this to the Honey Moon or Mead Moon. As tradition, newlyweds would drink mead daily following their wedding for the entire 28 ½ day long full moon phase. They were encouraged to consume this sweet wine to rouse good luck in their marriage; additionally, this honey wine (mead) would promote fertility and virility. From this ritual, the term “honeymoon” was born, referring to the time period following a wedding.
