How to Make Mead with Berries & Spices
Homemade spiced berry mead is a delicious and easy departure from the usual golden elixir. Its stunning amethyst color and fruity pop is a must-try homebrewing adventure!
It is believed that the honor of “oldest alcoholic beverage on the planet” goes to mead. Evidence of this enchanting gold elixir has been found in Chinese pottery vessels dating back to 7000 BCE. While the discovery of mead was almost certainly a happy accident, over the ages this “nectar of the gods” has found a home in many tales, myths, legends, customs, ceremonies, and traditional remedies. Today, mead is enjoyed around the world in a variety of styles and strengths, from session meads to full-strength sack meads.
