Mead in the USA

Mead in the USA

Mead in the United States of America is growing very quickly, a new meadery is opening every three days on average in the USA and every seven days in the rest of the world.


Here’s three fun facts about mead in the States that you may not have known:


1. Melomel (Fruit infused mead) is the most popular style.

2. 67% of all meaderies in the USA are under 5 years old.

3. The US only had 30 commercial meaderies in 2003. Now there are more than 500 estimated to be active.

Just to bring things back to home a bit, mead in the UK is growing slowly. "The mead industry is only just beginning to take off in the UK, however, tactics appear to be the same has in the US] - a strong craft stance, with the addition of sophisticated glass enclosures which help highlight the premium nature of the product," - Charles Sissens (Consumer analyst at Global Data)

In our latest podcast episode we speak with Vicky (GotMead?), Jeff (Superstition), Matt (All Wise), Jeff (Liquid Alchemy) & James (Charm City) about Mead in the states and how the industry is so unique and awesome.
