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
