Nectar of the Gods! The Norse God Odins favorite drink. Mead predates both wine, beer, liqueur and all distilled beverages; it is in a class of it’s own. Its made from fermented honey, water and yeast. It can be light or rich, sweet or dry, or even sparkling. It may be flavored with herbs, spices and flowers.
It is not a wine as it does not contain grapes, and white wines flavored with honey are just cheap imitations of the real thing and often have much lower alcohol content then real mead. Genuine mead is smooth and highly intoxicating.
