Top 10 St George’s Day drinks

Mead

meadMead can also be known as honey wine, it is produced by fermenting a solution of honey and water. It is a historic drink, indeed some people claim “before any other alcoholic drink was thought of, mead was being drunk in the great halls and palaces of England”.

Mead was generally made by monks in monasteries, but when these were dissolved by King Henry VIII, production and subsequently the drinking of mead began to fade away.

As with many other drinks in recent times some of these historic recipes for mead have been rediscovered and the drink is enjoying something of a revival. Cornwall and the west country have proven popular starting points for mead and the drink “is being rediscovered by a new generation of Englishmen.”
