This mead is made with Galangal, a spice from India, the land of spices. Galangal is closely related to Ginger and has a similar taste, spicy and pungent and beguiling. This mead is dry but a sweetness seems to linger because of the honey. Galangal, like ginger, is well known to help with stomach complaints and digestion issues. And just like ginger it has numerous positive effects on the body. Enjoy!
