Meet the Mead Family
The question we hear the most when we talk about starting a Meadery is, what is mead? Mead is an alcoholic drink made by fermenting honey and water. Mead is also known as honey-wine. Growing in popularity mead is becoming more common across the Country showing up in wineries or independently as a Meadery.
Mead can be dry, semi-sweet or sweet. There are several varieties of mead, a few we are testing include:
- Traditional mead is made with honey and water without any additional flavorings.
- Metheglin is a mead made with spices or herbs.
- Melomel includes a combination of honey and fruit. Examples we have been testing include the addition of aronia berries, elderberries and goji berries.
