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.

Nectar of the Gods! The Norse God Odin's favorite drink. Mead predates both wine, beer, liqueur and all distilled beverages; it is in a class of it’s own. It's 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.
I was very dissapointed that the bar was serving honey-flavored white wine as mead.

mead (noun), (german: Met)
Wine made from honey.
Roughly brewed like this:
Water and honey are transformed into wine by "usual" means.
Afterwards, the basic honey is put into the wine again to make it sweeter (better) and some herbs are added for further improvement of the taste. Recipes vary greatly.
First people who made "mead" were the vikings. Since then always been somewhat popular in many regions of the world.
This stuff was the reason for vikings' being so cool.

Usually will get you drunk fast if you are not used to this special kind of alcohol.

Best served either cold or hot.
Warm mead is like warm beer: tasting somewhat shitty in comparison to the cooled stuff.

Possible mixdrinks are:

Viking's blood:
50% mead
50% cherry juice
even sweeter than the pure stuff.

25-35% mead
65-75% beer
unique taste. For those who think mead to sweet.
