The Origin of "Honeymoon"

Did you know that mead is how the term "honeymoon" came to be?

On this Valentine's Day, here's a fun fact in celebration of Love.

Once believed to be an aphrodisiac, newlyweds would spend one full moon cycle after their union indulging in mead - a beverage made from fermented honey.

Couples would drink and rejoice, attributing their fertility and good fortunes to this sweet elixir. This period became known as the “honeymoon”.

Today, we celebrate this old tradition by capturing that bliss with our modern mead, a bright and effervescent reminder of the pleasure we know as Love.
