Balche mead is a mead made by the Mayans.
It was commonly made by mixing honey with water and soaking the Balche bark in the mix. The mix was then left to ferment, and produced an intoxicating honey-alcohol; which today would sort under mead.

The drink is still popular in parts of  Mexico, among the Yucatec Mayans

Høvdingen - Norwegian for Chieftain, is the nickname of the main author on This is a guy who despite having a full job at a normal company, dedicate all his free time to the pursuit of Viking knowledge, especially the use of natural ingredients in food and drinks. This is not to say that this guy is an expert on the subject - just very very interested ... Mead is one of the main interests, but the poor guy, this Chieftain - he has for some odd reason more an interest in the flavors, and less in the effect the alcohol has. Therefore- most of the mead he makes throughout the year - and that could be quite a lot - ends up with his VERY happy friends... ( and no .. there's no waiting list to be new mead-tasters ....)
