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.
Vikings Blood mead is a ‘melomel’ (fruited honey mead), using blossom honey. It is also wild fermented (no yeast is added) but uses the yeast in the fruit. It has fresh hedgerow berries (blueberry, blackcurrant and blackberry) added to the fermentation process. The addition of berries gives it a smooth and deceptive, almost alcohol-free taste – despite its percentage! The flavour has become a firm favourite with regulars and non-mead lovers alike and doesn’t stick around for long. Be careful of the ‘wobbly leg syndrome’ – you have been warned!
