Mead is wine made of honey, water and yeast. When you add fruits, berries, spices etc they get a different name.
10 years after my first brew I made my first Mead, I had planned it for a long time but never came to it. So below I will add different categories of creations made of honey.
Bochet is caramelised honey mead. People have caramelised honey since at least the 1300’s.
The Norse mythology has stories about Mead made with blood. So all meads I make that is red fall under this category.
