Alvinston Real Estate Adventures

I was asked by a client of mine to do real estate marketing  investigation of a subdivision site for new homes(unbelievably affordable building lot) he owns in Alvinston Ontario and by happenstance discovered Munro Honey & Munro's Meadery.(I was already in Watford on business) Wow ! The honey was unique and excellent but the Mead was to die for ! (they have free tasting)Perhaps I'll buy my clients a couple bottles of Mead as appreciation gifts ! I'm only a social drinker and not a connoisseur, however this Mead was the best tasting alcoholic drink I have ever had . And since Alvinston is under an hour's drive from downtown London Ont I would recommend it for a lazy afternoon drive in the country . Who knows you may find some very attractively priced country  properties small-town listings in Watford or Alvinston to call me about !


What is Mead?

Mead is a wine made from honey. It contains honey, water, and yeast that is fermented into wine.

Mead is, in all likelihood, the oldest alcoholic beverage known to mankind. Before agricultural techniques were developed, humans were traditionally hunters and gatherers. After gathering honey from the hive, it would be saved for special occasions; while it was stored the natural yeasts and the high moisture content would cause the honey to ferment, producing mead. It is no wonder mead is often referred to as the “nectar of the gods”, as its appearance seemed miraculous.

The term Honeymoon is believed to have come from the  custom of giving mead to the newlywed couple. The  bride and groom were given one month (one moon  cycle) of mead to drink after the wedding. It was  believed that if the couple followed this ritual they would  become more fertile.
