Modern Meads, Ancient Inspirations
We are a brewer owned independent Meadery having as much fun as possible plundering mead’s long history for inspiration. Founded by Stephen – the Mead Maker – we exist because he could never buy the drinks he read about in the Viking Sagas, Roman histories and other Ancient and Medieval texts. As a self- confessed history obsessive he wanted to see what history tasted like…. so he began brewing back in the mid 1990s. After many years amusing himself he decided to found Wanderer Mead and share the fun.
