How to serve mead?
When we want to compare mead with other alcohol, the closest one is wine. It has similar content of alcohol and we serve it in a wine glass or any tulip shape glass. To serve hot mead use whiskey glass or ceramic jar to keep temperature in.
Cold or warm?
You can drink mead cold, in a room temperature or warm. Cold mead with ice and lemon is very refreshing in summer. When you like warm mead, heat it up to 50-55°C without water or spice.
How long can I keep it after opening a bottle?
As soon as the mead is open, just keep it in a fridge or cold pantry and it will last for months. If it’s closed, there is no expiry. Date on the bottle is date of filling.

Mead is very good as a desert wine because of its sweetness. On the other side, it goes very well with duck, goose, ham or cheese.
