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.
Freya (Old Norse meaning ‘Lady’) is one of the pre-eminent Goddesses in Norse mythology. She is the Goddess associated with love, beauty, fertility, war, wealth, divination and magic.
Freya also served as a guide and companion on the journey to Valhalla for many Viking heroes who had died nobly.
This mead is a ‘Melomel’ (fruited honey mead) using Wildflower honey. It is wild fermented (no yeast is added – just the natural yeast present in the honey) and has freshly squeezed orange juice added to the fermentation process.
The addition of orange juice gives it a slightly softer and fruitier taste, making it a firm favourite with drinkers of cider and medium sweet white wines.
