How it’s made, what it tastes like and where to find it in North Carolina
What is mead?
This seemed like the most obvious question to start with.
“Mead, in its simplest form, is an alcoholic beverage made with honey and water, then fermented with yeast,” said Adams. “It can range from sweet to dry. It can also be traditional (just honey, water and yeast), or it can include fruit, vegetable, spices, herbs or malted grains — like beer.”
He’s not kidding about including fruits and vegetables beyond the “traditional” mead. In fact, Good Road Ciderworks actually produces Avogadro’s Trail, a mead crafted with avocado blossom honey. Which is great, you know, since millennials need to add avocados to everything anyway. (Avocado latte, anyone?)
