Meet Mike. He owns Waldmet Cellars with his wife Amber and is also the Meadmaker there. He's a bit of a fermentation fanatic, experienced home cook, and an avid craftsman & outdoorsman. With a professional background in marketing, graphic design, and software development; mead has been one of his many hobbies that allows him to step away from a screen and get his hands dirty.
Although mead is often associated with Viking and Medieval culture, it has been enjoyed by many others as well. Mead is likely the oldest alcoholic beverage, with evidence of its production being traced back to 6,500 to 7,000 B.C. in Northern China. That's certainly well before beer and grape wine made an appearance. Here’s why you should give this ancient drink a try now.
