Taste an antique—mead from fermented honey with other rich fruits and spices. It's like taking a historical field trip for your taste buds.

By Casey Barrett

Yes, mead, the medieval beverage of the Vikings and knights! Although it may sound old and outdated, mead—also known as "honey wine"—is rapidly making a comeback into mainstream drinking circles, but that doesn't mean it's readily available just anywhere. Starrlight Mead, out in Pittsboro, is one of less than 250 mead producers in the entire nation, luckily located right in the area! Some of their varieties include traditional off-dry, spiced apple, chai tea, kickin' cranberry orange (for those who like it spicy!) and a special reserve: chocolate orange. If you're the kind of person who likes their drinks and thinks you've tried 'em all, we definitely recommend you give a nod to the medieval brewers and try their drink of choice.
