Alas, my employer (Uncle Sam) has made it clear that I am not to obtain, produce, or consume alcohol of any type while deployed.  And since I would like to have it available when we get back, I will have to rely on the assistance of my Society brethren.

On the other hand, I have always wanted to try my hand at making mead so I will likely put some of the recipes I have received to use shortly after I get home.

Well, I prefer it in my cup. It really gets sticky on my hand and you  
waste so much of it.  Of course if pretty lady's would like me to  
lick it off their hand, that might be different...

You're "getting some mead made"? Why not make it yourself? It is 

fairly easy.  I've never had a mead fail. Cider on the other hand...

Here's some info and directions on making your own mead.   These are  
in the BEVERAGES section of the Florilegium:

Of course if you have to buy it commercially these reviews might  
help.  You have to be careful. I've seen bottles labeled "mead"
they were really grape wine flavored with some honey.
