What is mead?

The word mead comes from the Indo-European "madhu" and means something like sweet drink.
Mead is a product made from honey, water and yeast. The dissolved honey is subjected to a fermentation process lasting several weeks, during which its sugar is converted into alcohol. The honey used, the alcohol content, the type of yeast and the acidity determine the taste. Mead is storable and gets better with age. Mead can be drunk both cold and hot, making it a delicious alternative to mulled wine.

By adding different spices you can give the honey wine a completely different taste. In addition, with the right fermentation, dry or bitter mead can be produced. The yeast converts sugar into alcohol and its metabolites give mead its typical taste.

wrong mead

False mead is a wine cooked with honey, which has a similar taste to fermented mead, but is much easier to produce.

We are one of the largest online shops in Switzerland and offer you high-quality mead from Europe and around the world, which is pressed exclusively by producers who also understand their craft and are fully committed to the art of mead production.

We produce our own mead in our own brewery. Produced in Switzerland with only natural ingredients. This mead was produced gently and is natural.

The history of mead/honey wine

It is well established that mead and grape wine were mankind's first alcoholic beverages after beer, which has an even older history (latest sources date it to around 5500 BC). Processes for the production of wine were already around 3500 BC in Egypt and the Near East. known. Mead production has a somewhat older tradition.

The drink was extremely popular not only among the Germans, but also among the ancient Greeks, Romans and in Great Britain and Scandinavia. At festivals and mystical cults, mead was used as an intoxicating drink, and because the effects of alcohol were not yet understood, many myths and legends arose about the drink, and mead became a gift from the gods.

Mead was given a place of honor at the Roman banquet tables alongside drinks made from grapes. Since sweet honey could only be obtained from wild bees, mead was a very expensive drink. Under Charlemagne, mead was the drink at court par excellence. At that time, it was also increasingly used by monastery brothers as a remedy or remedy carrier (addition of herbs).

It was not until the late Middle Ages that honey wine became a drink of the "common" people due to the establishment of beekeepers. This was not without consequences for the choice of drinks at court. So the royal houses turned their attention to grape wine from the south.
