  1. There are some absolutely delicious mead varieties out there. I once made a vanilla metheglyn. I also once used buckwheat honey which had a unique taste. An old room mate actually got super inspired and started his own mead company years ago and had some spicy flavours different fruits, you name it. It’s super easy to make and delicious.
