An ancient alcoholic beverage made by fermenting water and honey. When only water honey and yeast is used, then it's mead, and can be sweet(sack mead), Dry, still or sparkling. Mead that is aged for an extended period of time(more than a year) is commonly called Great Mead(and it is)

If grape juice is added before fermentation, it's called Pyment.

If other fruit juices or puree's (such as strawberries or blueberries) it's called Melomel.

If malts, grains and/or hops are added to a mixture of mostly honey and water, it's called Braggot.

If apple juice is added before fermentation, it's Cyser.

If herbs or spices are added it's Metheglin.

Mead predates all known forms of alcohol. Originally it was made with honey, water and wild yeasts, but nowadays it's usually made with cultured yeast strains.

The term honeymoon comes from the practice of drinking mead for the first month after a marriage.

A honey-based alcoholic drink from medieval times, often drank today by nerds who play Warhammer, medieval re-enactment knights who think they're actually living in the middle ages, and goths with an interest in both areas.
Here now, who wants a serving of mead? I'm sorry, we have no beer or vodka within these walls. Just mead. Pass me your goblet and I'll pour you some.
