Modern mead

I learned yesterday, while completing a crossword puzzle with my Dad, that the ancient honey-based beverage of mead has made a comeback. An estimated 165 meaderies in which the brew is distilled and bottled operate in the U.S. alone (REVIEWS AND SLIDESHOW HERE). Danish entrepreneurs Karin Sloth and partner Thomas Bredholt began brewing mead as a hobby on their farm at Tågerup in Roskilde and now offer it commercially under their Snoremark brand. Formerly the chief press officer for the Social Democrats when they were the biggest party in Denmark, Sloth says, apparently with no hint of irony, "It’s so different, having worked as a journalist and an adviser, to actually produce something.”
