The Name of the Wind Metheglin!

I got an email from a web visitor (Jordan) who read a line in a Patrick Rothfuss novel that goes like this:

"I took a drink from the tall tankard to give myself a chance to collect my wits, and something wonderful happened in my mouth: cool spring honey, clove, cardamom, cinnamon, pressed grape, burnt apple, sweet pear, and clear well water. That is all I have to say of metheglin"

Well, That inspired Jordan to go ahead and try making a mead with these flavors!

Does it get any better than that!!!!

I will keep you updated on this mead.


So, this is a wonderful experiment and a great idea. Let's see how it turns out. Jordan will keep us updated on the progress of this metheglin.

 Heres the recipe Jordan is trying:

  • 3 pounds of clover honey
  • 25 raisins
  • 2 pears 
  • 3/4ths of an apple
  • 8 grapes cut in half
  • 1 clove
  • 1 pinch of cardamom
  • 1 cinnamon stick and of course natural spring water


And Here is the Novel that inspired the experiment:

The Name of the Wind

This is the riveting first-person narrative of Kvothe, a young man who grows to be one of the most notorious magicians his world has ever seen. From his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that transports readers into the body and mind of a wizard.
