MEAD (HONEY WINE)

   

   HOME | CATALOGUE | MEAD (HONEY WINE)

  • For the traditions associated with mead making and mead drinking, much comes to us from our scandinavain heritage. Who would have thought that the bees, the moon and the magical brews of man could combine to add to the bliss, the lustre\'s, and the memories of weddings? For mead is the beverage of love. Our phrase honeymoon comes from the revelous wedding celebrations of the Norse, who danced and drank until the mead and ale ran out, and woe be unto the host that didn\'t have sufficient supplies to last the full cycle of the moon! The drinking of mead has also been held responsible for fertility and the birth of sons, a very important consideration when the male offspring accounted for much status in warrior clans. It was thought that if mead were consumed for one month (one moon) after a wedding, then the first child born to the couple would be male. Considering that the alcoholic content of mead often runs to twelve, or even fourteen percent by volume, this would prove to be quite a party! Successful male births were cause for further celebreations, and congratulations went out to the maker of the mead, as well as to the groom, who could now boast of his power, potence, and manliness.
