Why mead? What makes mead standout? Every meadery has to answer this question but I think it’s time that our industry group start to answer it officially. Maybe we could all come up with a few reasons and vote? Then poll our true fans and go from there.
Or maybe we could make a montage. For me, mead stands out because it is Sunshine and Flowers in the Glass! It was the gift of the Gods to Humanity in myths and epic stories the world over and we get to rediscover it and recreate it.
When you take something back to its root, you are said to be “radical” (that’s the etymology of the word radical - back to the root). To me, mead is:
The Radical Re-Creation of Regenerative, Radiant Drinking
Radical because we're going back to humanity's roots, when the gods partied with us and provided the libations.
Re-Creation because we’re bringing it back in a new way.
Regenerative because mead supports the earth's capacity to support life unlike any other libation.
Radiant because it is sunlight (and flowers) in drinkable form. Drinking because - its drinking. Woo! So good.
