What is Mead? Mead is an alcoholic drink of fermented honey and water! However, not all meads are created in the same manner. Known as the drink of the Gods and in modern memory, associated with the Vikings, mead is now also produced using base alcohol, white wine or sugar syrup, with honey added at a later stage.
Baldur is the second son of Odin and Frigg. A bold warrior, yet one of the favourite of the Aesir Gods.
Baldur is often interpreted as the God of love, peace, forgiveness, justice, light and purity. This mead is a dry ‘Hydromel’ (pure honey mead) using Wildflower honey. To give it a dry finish, we simply use slightly less honey. By using the wildflower honey, it gives it a deeper, earthier flavour but without the sweet edge. This mead is wild fermented (no yeast is added) and shows the delicate intricacies of the honey, giving this mead a very busy flavour, yet pleasant sensation.
