The oldest of all fermented beverages, mead is commonly associated with medieval culture. However, mead's origins can be traced to parts of Africa and Asia where it was used for medicinal and ceremonial purposes.
Ironically, it was actually during medieval times that honey became more expensive and people turned to other beverages. While mead remained the drink of kings, it slipped largely into obscurity among the common people.
Mead’s decline 500 years ago brought innovation to a halt until the middle of the 20th century. Since then, a handful of researchers and a large group of commercial and hobby mead makers have been sharing knowledge in an effort to encourage mead making and advance the understanding of mead production.
Now, mead is once again finding its place with a new group of connoisseurs. Our mead is gluten-free and Star-K kosher certified.
