Information on genuine home-made mead

A sweet mead similar to the drink we know today has been made in Finland since the 18th century, when it was mainly reserved for the gentry, as sugar and honey were expensive. Finnish mead is sweeter than traditional Scandinavian mead, and it has a low alcohol content, on average about 1 per cent/volume. The alcohol content can be influenced by changing the length of the fermentation time and the amount of sugar. Finnish mead also probably originally contained honey, from which it gets its name, but nowadays it is mostly brown sugar and lemon that give the drink its flavour. Once mead became affordable for ordinary people, it came to be associated with May Day, the traditional working class holiday held on the first of May. Nowadays mead is mainly drunk in Finland around that time.
The history of mead goes far back into ancient times, when the drink was made from water, honey and yeast – a kind of “honey wine”. The Vikings made mead to raise their fighting spirit. For a long time mead was the favoured drink in northern Europe until its place was taken by wine imported from the South.
