the history of mead
Mead is the oldest fermented beverage known to man with evidence dating back to 7000 BC. Meads have been present in various cultures through the ages - the Vikings drank it before a battle, ancient Indian texts mentioned it and Greek and Roman historians have discussed it. There have also been numerous references in literature, from Shakespeare and Lord of the Rings to Harry Potter and even Game of Thrones. The last decade has seen a resurgence that has taken this versatile archaic drink out of history and into the limelight as the fastest-growing craft beverage in the world.
