The King's Pyment Mead
750ml, Wax Sealed Natural Cork
With the advent of white sugar after 1500 AD, honey became scarce in Europe so grapes were added to the mead to stretch the honey. Pyment was born! Enjoy the rich traditional flavors of grape and honey in our King’s Pyment.
There are plenty of legends in the sage of mead wine. The story behind pyment is that when sugar made its way to Europe in the 15th century, honey became scarce. Grapes had migrated north with the Roman conquests. The shortage of honey created a need to stretch the honey. The newly available grapes were combined with honey and pyment was born. Hidden Legend Meadery’s pyment is a blend of red grape wine and honey wine crafted to commemorate this period of history.
