This is original mead. With a keen and enquiring mind Ken Maxwell was a student of history, a notable measure of eccentricity saw his passion lean not to the long deceased Kings and Queens filling the educational text books of the time, but to the obscure and creative beverages upon which they indulged.
Like many great things in history, spiced mead was born out of necessity. When mead found its way to England in the middle-ages by the sharp end of a Viking sword, honey was a cheaper commodity than sugar. Mead was fermented communally and was available for consumption around the village.
Where beer and cider was the daily tipple of the Vikings, mead was considered something a little more special. Indeed it was the wedding drink of the Norse. In medieval Europe it was served at the finest occasions, consumed at court by royalty and a badge of affluence and status
