Little John will be teaching this basic mead making ( and tasting) class. Mead has been around for as long as humans have documented history (and a long time before that) according to archaeological finds. Greek tradition holds that it was a drink enjoyed by Zeus and lesser gods, and it played a hugely important role among ancient Druids, with many a chant and hymn composed in its honor (Nash, 1858).We may add some herbs, especially since Meadowsweet should be in full bloom. A mead made with herbs is technically called a “metheglin.” An especially well-loved brewing herb is Meadowsweet, used from at least medieval times until the present day to flavor mead, wine, and beer; in 14th-century England, it was called “madwort” or “meadwort” (Grieve, 1971). Nicholas Culpeper (1990) and other physicians of his day added decoction of the leaves and flowers in wine to “make the heart merry” (although I wonder whether the ethanol content itself had a lot to do with this merriment!). Other herbs commonly in mead are lemon balm, hibiscus, ginger, hops, vanilla, rose, dandelion, even rosemary.
