What is Mead?
MEAD is a type of wine made from pure honey that is naturally fermented. The process involves diluting honey with water and fermenting it with yeast. Mead is believed to be the oldest fermented drink in human history and was popular throughout the entire European continent during the Middle Ages. The sweet and delicious drink was called "Mead of Poetry" by the Vikings and was thought to inspire creativity and poetry. Mead is also the most expensive fermented drink to produce. In ancient Europe, the royal couple would drink mead for a month to symbolize happiness, sweetness, and fertility, which is the origin of the term "HoneyMoon".

Although mead was lost during the industrialization period, it has gained popularity again in recent years with the rise of craft beer culture. Pop culture works such as "Game of Thrones", "Lord of the Rings", and "Vikings" have mentioned mead, bringing more attention to this sweet brew.

Now, mead has become an increasingly popular drink in some countries, especially in the United States. In addition to traditional sweet mead, sparkling mead has also become more popular. The addition of carbon dioxide makes it richer in taste and more like a sparkling wine. Moreover, different fruits and ingredients can be added, and it can even be aged in barrels to add unique flavors and character. Mead has become one of the most popular categories in the emerging alcoholic beverage market. Since 2011, the market has grown by over 130%, becoming the fastest growing alcoholic beverage market in Europe and America.
