What is mead?
Put simply, mead is alcohol made from honey, and It’s widely recognized as the oldest alcohol in the world, but beyond that, mead varies greatly.
Since mead is made from honey, you may assume that it’s always sweet, but mead ranges from bone-dry to dessert-sweet. It can be carbonated, light, and low alcohol, or it can be full-bodied, dark, and contain over 15% alcohol.
So what mead is goes beyond the simple fact that it contains booze and honey. Mead might just be the most versatile alcoholic beverage there is, and certainly the one with the longest history.
