Bottles of industrially manufactured Lithuanian mead (Midus)

Midus is a type of Lithuanian mead, an alcoholic beverage made of grain, honey and water. Balts were making mead for thousands of years.[1] Old Lithuanian mead was made from a solution of honey and water simmered with various spices, such as thyme, lemon, cinnamon, cherries, linden blossoms, juniper berries, and hops.[2] Today Midus is produced by several companies and is to be found in the majority of liquor shops in the US and supermarkets in Lithuania.
