Brewing traditional mead

I recently came across a small business in my region that is brewing mead and decided to try their product. They had a rather interesting offering of mead with lime and chilli. It was a sweet mead with around 15% alcohol volume and a slight note of citrus and chilli.

I’ve always had an interest in ancient history and mead of one of those things you hear about in legends. Often attributed to vikings but it was perhaps the oldest known alcohol and common in history across various civilizations and locations.
