Why did I become a mead maker?

My main interests are history and ethnography. After earning a master's degree in architecture and working for several years, I went on a journey through the countries of Eurasia. Once, in the mountains of Tian Shan, I joined an archaeological team unearthing the ruins of a city on the Silk Road that was a meeting point of various cultures and religions in the 6th century A.D, where people traded not only goods but knowledge as well.

There was a historian on our team who, every night, told us ancient legends and lore. One of these stories was about mead, the honey based beverage that was venerated by every nation of antiquity. They believed it to be a gift from the Gods. Who were these Gods? Perhaps mead was inherited from vanished civilizations? How could we have let this priceless gift sink into oblivion? Together with other pieces of ancient wisdom that we are beginning to rediscover, it is time to revive this unjustly forgotten Elixir of Life.

Do you know what a "symposium" is?

Today's symposium is a dry affair where scholars and researchers convene to present and discuss their findings. In Ancient Greece, however, the symposium (lit. "to drink together") was a meeting, usually following a dinner, for drinking and intellectual conversation.

Together with mead, the forgotten tradition of good cheer will return as well.

Authentic mead should give not only joy but health as well. My wife is a medical doctor who spent a large part of her life studying herbology and phytotherapy (plant-derived medicine). A teacher of Qigong and energy self-healing for over 2 decades, she firmly believes that NATURE is the BEST doctor. She selects and combines the herbs used in our mead, to make sure that it is not only tasty but also healthy!

It is time to revive the legendary beverage!
