This week we’re talking about the oldest adult beverage known to man: MEAD. You’ve probably read about it in some romantic tale - it’s one of the most documented boozy beverages in history - and maybe you’ve had a chance to try it, but many are still unfamiliar with this storied drink of fermented honey. Our guest this week is award-winning author and spirits expert, Fred Minnick who's just written the book Mead: The Libations, Legends and Lore of History’s Oldest Drink. Take a listen and find out what all the buzz is about.
This week's cocktail, created by Fred Minnick and Jeremy Johnson, owner of Meta in Louisville, Kentucky, is the Mead Vesper - basically a Vesper cocktail with the addition of mead.
