Mead is often used synonymously with the term “Honey Wine” (Schramm, 1993)  and, at least initially, probably best thought of that way as in its simplest form it is merely honey (instead of grapes), water, and yeast.  Most historians argue that it is the oldest of all alcoholic beverages with evidence of people imbibing in mead over 8000 years ago and was probably one of (McGovern et al., 2004), was once considered t...

What does “honeymoon” really mean and where did the term come from?

To numerous cultures including the Welsh, German, Scandinavian, Celts, and even ancient Romans the consumption of mead was associated with weddings and bringing about children after marriage.  Considered an aphrodisiac the idea was that the daily imbibing in mead would increase the fertility and virility of young newlywed wed couples and thus increase...

Like a child during the last few days before Christmas…the anticipation is really beginning to build and a two-year odyssey is about to come to and end…

Having sent some zany and wild mead samples into competitions over the years (including one with home-grown bell peppers!) the last two have been unique as we focused on solely sending and refining what would become the signature mead recipes.   Our focus has been sim...

As a two-time Teacher of The Year, U.S. Navy veteran, and homebrewer since the late 90’s I’ve come to appreciate the value of well crafted products from many walks of life.  What I like to bring to my mead recipes isn’t too inconsistent from what I’ve learned from and brought to each of these areas — a type of passion.  The type of passion for taking what is local and nurturing it into a world class performer....

First and foremost great crafted mead does not have to be clear…we are quite certain mazers 1000s of years ago did not bother with it and did fine — but there is something about clear mead.  How do you get it?   There are no guarantees but overall there are a number of things a person can do if they really want clear mead.  Here are our suggestions from easiest to most difficult:

Purchase filtered honey.  We...

In the mead business it is all about the honey…and with traditional mead (mead that focuses solely  on the honey itself and not spices, fruits, or other fermentibles) this is incredibly important!  We have earned three medals just this year at major competitions with our traditional meads:

  • GOLD for our Tupelo Honey Traditional — Domra’s Mead Cup

  • GOLD (and runner-up Best-of-Show) for our Ga...
