What is mead?
For more than 9,000 years, the fermentation of honey has helped define culture and shape history. Early Slavic trading, Norse Mythology, Vedic Hymns of India, Old English Epics, 19th century Russian Literature. All of these acts or works, not to mention the contemplations of many a great mind of ancient Greece, have taken part in documenting and contributing to the continuing history of what we commonly refer to as Honey Wine or Mead.
Arktos Meadery is now one more step in this evolutionary process. Nature has so graciously provided us with all the ingredients necessary for the production of this Nectar of the Gods. Now it is our responsibility to take these fruits, spices, and yeasts and combine them with the two simple ingredients of honey and water for the purpose of continuing the hallowed tradition of making mead.
It is our hope and intention to provide each and every one of our mead drinkers with the finest, simplest and most natural mead possible. Oh, that sweet, sweet nectar.
Heed the bee and this queen will lead you to the gods. Our nectar, imbued with the sweet taste of Michigan Wildflower Honey, fermented, and then aged in custom oak, will transport you to a place only the ancient Greeks have known. Let the complex subtleties of our traditional honey wine bathe your senses in the honorable intentions of the Bee.
