Mead is made by fermenting honey and water. What I love about mead is that there is virtually unlimited flavours.
We use fruits or spices to add flavours to our mead. This alone can produce hundreds of combinations however in addition to this every honey tastes different. Honey I have tasted from various hives merely 5km apart can taste totally different.
Although I prefer sweeter meads, meads aren’t always sweet. They can be completely dry depending on how much of the honey the mead maker lets the yeast consume during fermentation.
