Honey Mead: When You’re Feeling Like a Medieval King (or Queen)

Honey Mead: When You’re Feeling Like a Medieval King (or Queen)

honeymeadFermenting honey with water is one of the oldest ways to make wine. It’s an ancient tipple that Celtics, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and mythical heroes alike enjoyed. The term “honeymoon” originated from the practice of newlyweds drinking honey mead for a month in the hopes of producing a son.

Honey mead is the latest edition to Lakeland Winery. We make our delicious wine with a smooth finish in the tradition of Metheglin — a type of honey mead combined with herbs. Our honey mead is made with Ethiopian hops.

This honey mead packs a punch — it’s 18 percent alcohol.
